KSU Stadium added 31 luxury boxes and 7,000 seats. The 

$12.8-million expansion increased permanent seating to 

46,300. With temporary seating, the stadium could hold about 

50,000 people. The increase added 1 ,200 general admission 

seats to the student section but still left 1 2,643 students without 

tickets. With last year's high expectations, which ended with 

two disappointing losses, the football team and its fans were in 


between a successful and disappointing season, but student 
season ticket sales rose to 8,900 compared to last year's 8,775. 

Ticket availability on KATS in spring 1999 eliminated last 
year's frustration of standing in line. Still, the K- State ticket office 
oversold 350 student reserved football tickets, leaving those 
students with the option of visitor's seats, folding chairs or the 
additional cost of purchasing new chair-back seats. The choice 
of chair-back seats would increase the cost of season tickets for 
those students to $1 ,432 instead of the original $98. 

Greek opportunities changed with the closing of two houses, 
Acacia and Sigma Sigma Sigma, and the addition of two Greek 
houses, Theta Chi and Kappa Delta. 

Students occupied all 2,000 rooms in the residence halls, 
which showed a 4.2-percent increase in the halls. Enrollment 
figures on the 20th day of class showed the largest in K-State 
history. K-State-Salina's campus had its largest enrollment at 
923, an increase from last year's 828. The Salina campus 
boasted a 14-percent increase in freshman enrollment and a 
52-percent rise in out-of-state students. 

For the first time, the Collegian printed in a four-color format. 
The change to color took the printing contract off campus to the 
Salina Journal, instead of Printing Services in Kedzie Hall's 
basement, where it had been printed for 1 03 years. 

As time went On and events occurred, students could not 
help but think they were in between advancements K-State had 
already instated and the possibilities 21 st-century improvements 
would bring.

Country music fans party, dance, play 


Country music fans braved sun, wind and rain to enjoy 

a four-day concert at Tuttle Creek State Park. More than 40,000 people 
attended Country Stampede June 24-27. Ninety-degree temperatures kept fans exposed 

to the sun for the first two days of the 
concert followed by rain early Sunday 
morning, which caused flooding in 
the camp- 

stands and,

holders showed up for Reba McEntire's 
performance on Sunday.

parking was prohibited for Sunday's 
concert. Patrons parked in CiCo Park 
on Kimball Avenue, and drivers from 
the Junction City Bus Company 
bused them to the campgrounds. 
Fans endured up to three hours of 
waiting to get into the concert. 

Despite delays, parking officials 
said the plan worked well. 

"We had a plan in place," Michael 
Quintanar, parking traffic manager, 
said. "We hoped we wouldn't have to 
use it." 

The flooding supplied some 
enjoyment for fans, especially those 
who camped for the weekend.

Students, worldwide researchers study Konza Prairie 
Natural Resource Area, yet others miss the importance 
of ecological studies in Manhattan's backyard. 


A drive down the highway could not tell the prairie's complete story. 
Konza Prairie Natural Resource Area fit the typical description of 
Kansas, but few people knew the grassland's details. 

"Konza is pretty much an anomaly," Karoline Jarr, senior in biology, 
said. "The rest of the United States and Midwest is not like this at all." 

Konza Prairie researchers made ecological and environmental 
discoveries, but students and Manhattan residents did not realize the 
the prairie's importance to ecological studies, Jarr said. 

"I get frustrated with people's apathy and ignorance toward 
environmental issues," Jarr said. "I probably sound like a hippie granola 
nut, but people fail to realize and understand that they are part of the 
ecosystem and environment." 

Konza Prairie, one of one percent of natural prairies left in the world, 
was located just south of Manhattan. The Nature Conservancy and 
K-State owned the 8,600-acre research area, founded in 1971 and named 
after the Konza Indians. 

Elly Miller, junior in biology from Omaha, Neb., chose to attend 
K-State because of Konza's research opportunities. 

"There is virtually no prairie left," Miller said. "Konza is one of the 
only prairies in its natural state. A lot of people don't think of Konza 
as a natural prairie area, but it's a great place to experience what we 
are learning in class." 

Molly Magill, senior in microbiology, said Konza Prairie's uses were 
not limited to research. 

"A lot of my friends have a favorable opinion of it," she said. "My 
friends who are totally detached from research go out to walk the trails." 

Research activities on the prairie centered on ecology. Jarr worked 
on two different Konza Prairie research projects for 2 1/2 years. One 
project focused on prairie restoration. Along with Sara Baer, graduate 
student in biology, she planted native grasses and forbs (flowering 
plants) to research the effects of resource heterogenity the mixture of 
different resources on an area. Although the project would not be 
completed until next year, Jarr said the natural grasses and forbs had 
grown past her head. 

"It's amazing," she said. "Not many restoration projects respond 
this quickly."

a night out 


Female students had weekly opportunities to take 
advantage of free cover charges, lower-priced drink 
specials at four Manhattan bars. 


The line moved slowly while patrons waited patiently to file inside. 
The music poured onto the street, calling the dancers to the dance floor. 
Every Wednesday Thursday and Friday evening women in Manhattan 
ventured out for Ladies' Night. 

Bars offered Ladies' Nights on different nights. Ladies could get 
into Longhorn's, Porter's, Silverado's and Kicker's on the designated 
Ladies' Nights without a cover charge. 

Matt Church, Longhorn's manager, said besides game days, 
Wednesday nights were their busiest time. 

"There were a wide variety of people who attended Ladies' Night," 
Church said. "They ranged from college students to Fort Riley 
residents, cowboys and girls to greek-affiliated persons." 

Melissa Goering, freshman in business administration, went to 
Longhorn's with her friend Selina Cammer, sophomore in agribusiness. 

"Ladies' Night on Wednesday is good because it gives you a break 
from classes, school and everything. And it's free," Goering said. 

Derec Yakel, Longhorn's bouncer and junior in agriculture 
technology management, spent most of his time working the door and 
surveying the crowd for problems. 

"The best thing about Longhorn's is that everyone is friendly, and it 
is a laid-back atmosphere," Yakel said. "I have just as much fun, if not 
more, at Longhorn's than at any bar in Aggieville." 

The people who came to Longhorn's usually became regulars and 
in many cases, Yakel' s friends. 

"I have made more friends here than anywhere else." Yakel said. 
"Everyone will always say 'hi.'"

Wednesday and Saturday, Silverado's biggest nights, drew a large 
crowd due to the atmosphere, Gilman said. To pick up business on 
Thursday, one of their slower nights, they added Ladies' Night. 

Bars ran ads for their Ladies' Nights, which included drink specials. 

"I heard about Ladies' Night at Longhorn's from a friend of mine 
as well as from the advertisements," Goering said. "Ladies' Night is a 
good way to draw in a crowd." 

Cammer had heard about Ladies' Night through her friends. Their 
influence aided her decision to attend. 

"I usually go out on Wednesday night, unless I have a test the next 
day," Cammer said. "I usually meet up with my friends at Longhorn's, 
when I am looking for something to do." 

Ely Sprenkle, bartender at Kicker's, said Friday's crowd at Ladies' 
Night varied with the time of day. He said an older crowd usually 
attended during the day, and as the night progressed the crowd tended 
to be younger. 

"We chose Friday because we figured that if a group of people came 
in on Friday and liked what they saw, then they would come back for 
more on Saturday," Spenkle said. "We also offer swing lessons on 
Tuesday nights, to draw in the crowd." 

Dan Wallace, Porter's manager, said their Ladies' Night, catered to 
ladies who already went out on Wednesdays. 

"We just recently started having Ladies' Night, and so far it has 
been pretty successful," Wallace said. "There has only been a slight 
increase in attendance, but people seem to enjoy the martini 
atmosphere. Porter's has a classy feel about it, like bars in Kansas City."

her bike weighed about 245 

pounds, and she lifted weights 

about two times a week and 

mountain biked three times a

season. "The pure adrenaline in 

the beginning of a race is 

amazing," she said. "I'm thrilled 

and scared at the same time, and 

I just keep thinking, 'I hope I don't 

break myself.' Once I hit about 

two miles, though, I get in the

Dirt bike racer's love of male-dominated sport 
challenges stereotypes, earns respect from peers, 
strengthens relationship with father. 



While other 5-year-old girls marveled over dolls and kittens, Michele 
Eidam, freshman in chemical engineering, said she learned how to 
ride her shiny red Honda PW 50 dirt bike. 

"My dad bought a dirt bike for me when I was born," Eidam said. 
"He started teaching me to ride when I was little, and I started racing 
when I was about 14." 

But Eidam did not just race. She won. 

After claiming the 1999 Missouri State Hare Scramble Series 
Champion title in the women's class, she emerged as a top female 
racer. She also won first place in an American Motorcycle Association 
National Hare Scramble Championship race and earned second at the 
1995-1996 and 1996-1997 Blackjack Enduro Circuit. 

"I get more respect when people know I do this since I'm a girl and 
it's somewhat rare," she said. "My goal, however, is instead of hearing 
people say, 'She's good for a girl,' to hear them say, 'She's good.' " 

Eidam said while people initially acted surprised to find out about 
her hobby, her friends' reactions tended to be very supportive. 

"When I first heard she raced dirt bikes, I thought it was a joke," 
Ryan Dreiling, freshman in electrical engineering, said. "Then she 
started bringing home trophies and I thought, 'Wow, here's this girl 
who rides dirt bikes, and she's really good.' " 

Eidam said she faced obstacles as both off-road racer and student. 

"The season is March to November," Eidam said. "During that time 
I race or ride about every weekend, which means leaving around 6 
a.m. on Saturday and getting back here around 2 a.m. Monday." 

Alexandria Dunn, Eidam's roommate and freshman in mechanical 
engineering, said Eidam did not keep her dedication a secret. 

"She told me she raced dirt bikes within 10 minutes of our first 
conversation," Dunn said. "The neat thing is that dirt biking doesn't 
influence her personality, her personality influences her performance." 

Eidam said she considered the close relationship with her father to 
be the largest benefit she received from riding dirt bikes. 

"The bond my father and I share is unimaginable," she said. "He's 
my teacher, my mentor and my companion. He tells me some of his 
proudest moments are when people see us ride and ask him if that's 
his son out there and he gets to tell them, 'No, that's my daughter.' "

Their room had boxes stacked on top of each 
other, two beds covered with clothing, bare 
white walls and no room to walk. 

Lisa Griggs', freshman in kinesiology, and 
Amanda Curth's, freshman in elementary 
education, Room 828 in Ford Hall had only a 
small path to walk through Aug. 21, the 
weekend before fall semester began. 

While attending Shawnee Mission North 
High School in Overland 
Park, Kan., the women 
knew each other from 
cheerleading, but did not 
spend much time together. 

During their senior year 
of high school the two 
became friends. After 
making the K-State Junior 
Varsity Cheerleading squad 
last spring, they decided to 
become roommates and 
rush. Griggs said she felt 
uncertain about attending 
K-State and thought living with Curth would 
make her feel more comfortable. 

"We were talking about school, and I wasn't 
sure about K-State," Griggs said. "We got along 
and really didn't know anybody else. And our 
senior year we became friends." 

At the end of Rush Week, Griggs pledged Pi 
Beta Phi and Curth pledged Chi Omega. 

After Rush Week Griggs' family arrived to 
help them move in. 

"We knew exactly what we wanted," Griggs 
said. "We went shopping beforehand and got 
matching bedspreads and had everything 
planned out." 

They pushed the desk with books, the 
microwave, photographs, dirty dishes and shoes 
into the hallway to create enough room to 
rearrange. But clothes, refrigerators, shoes and 
other belongings still consumed the room. 

Julie, Griggs' mom, unpacked clothes, filled 
drawers, stocked the medicine cabinet and made 
the room feel more like home. Griggs' brother, 
Chris, and dad, Steve, put up lofts and created 
more living space for the girls. 

Noticing tears while unpacking, Curth asked 
Griggs' mom why she cried. 

"Because I'm leaving my daughter today," 
Julie said. 

Julie said it was tough to say goodbye to her 
only daughter. 

"They will either kill each other or be more

best friends," Julie said. "I think I'm just a 
worrywart. I wonder if she is as independent as 
I want her to be. I worry about her paying her 
bills and everything. It's a live-and-learn 
situation. Every parent has to get used to the 
adjustment. Kids grow up." 
Twelve hours of classes, two to three hours 
of daily cheerleading practice and sorority ac- 
tivities filled their weeks. 

Every night from 6 p.m. 
to about 8:30 p.m. the cheer- 
leaders practiced at 
Brandeberry Indoor Com- 
plex, working on stunts, 
chants and physical condi- 

Following most prac- 
tices, part of the team went 
to the Chester E. Peters Rec- 
reation Complex to work 
out more. 

Curth said appearances 
played a bigger role in 
college cheering than in high school. 

"I didn't feel like I was in competition with 
my appearance, my weight, my everything," 
Curth said. "I look at the other girls and want 
to be thinner." 

Practice and performances, along with 
worrying about gaining the freshman 15, made 
Curth unhappy with college cheerleading, she 

"Cheerleading interferes with everything," 
Curth said. "Like date parties. Semiformal, 
everybody got there at 6, and I didn't get there 
until 10 p.m. because I was cheering at a 
basketball game." 

The fun had been taken out because it 
involved too much time, Curth said. Cheering 
also took away from her studying, she said. She 
had hoped for a 3.5 grade point average her first 
semester but received a 3.0. 
Aug. 22, the weekend before fall classes 
started, they walked campus together to find 
their classes. 

"Class had been moved to King 209 so I go, 
7:30 in the morning," Griggs said of her first day 
of class. "I go to class. At about eight I realize I 
was in Chemistry 935. 1 just stayed there. Then, 
at lunch, I set my tray down, get my drinks, 
whatever, have all my food and cups on it, and 
it falls. Everybody looks at everything break."

Curth and Griggs went home to Overland 
Park, Kan., Sept. 24 for their high school's 
Homecoming. As part of a tradition, the previ- 
ous year's cheerleaders 
came back and cheered 
during the second half of 
the Homecoming football 

The experience for 
Griggs did not turn out 
how she hoped. When 
coming down from a stunt, 
her pinky finger got caught 
on the girl below her and 
bent backwards. She 
thought she had broken 
her finger, but never had 
an X-ray to confirm it be- 
cause she wanted to continue her season. 

Sept. 29, Griggs' cheerleading coach moved 
her to the varsity squad. 

"Totally didn't expect it at all," Griggs said. 
"I thought this other girl was going to get it. I 
was really excited. The first game I was nervous 
and didn't do very good because I wasn't con- 
fident in myself." 


"We have our times," Curth said. "Right now 
she is busy so she isn't picking up her stuff." 

Griggs felt the same about Curth and nei- 

ln the Shawnee County Court- 
house Curth waits to see the dis- 
trict attorney Sept. 16. Curth re- 
ceived a speeding ticket for driving 
50 mph in a 35 mph construction 
zone. She traveled toTopeka to get 
a diversion. The DA reduced her 
ticket to a non-moving violation at 
a cost of $120. (Photo by Steven

ther one cleaned up when they were busy. 
"I think she is a slob," Griggs said. 
Living together brought laughs to Griggs 
late at night, she said. 

"The phone will ring at 
like one in the morning or 
something," Griggs said. 
"She will jump out of bed 
and go down that thing 
(loft ladder) really, really 
fast and fall on her butt." 

Living together brought 
Griggs and Curth closer, 
but both said they liked in- 
dividual time. Being on dif- 
ferent squads and in differ- 
ent sororities allowed them 
to have separate lives and 
still be friends. 
"We were good friends," Griggs said. "Now 
we are best friends because you learn a lot about 
someone when you live with them. She has 
taught me things like being more outspoken and 
not to care what other people think about you. I 
love her. I don't have anything bad to say about 
her. We get along really good. We haven't fought 
at all." 

Curth said she learned from Griggs as well. 
"She taught me to be nicer to people," Curth 
said. "To be more respectful to people. She's a

Sold for the 


With cash or check in hand, more than 200 students 

filled Goodnow Hall's second-floor lobby into the stairwell, waiting for 
Tarzan and Jane and other couples to be auctioned Jan. 27. "We dressed up because we 

wanted it to be fun," said Jane look-a- 
like Devin Schehrer, sophomore in sec- 
ondary education. "We got people 
laughing so they would bid." 

The Goodnow Date Auction pro- 
moted dating safety and supported 
Manhattan Women's Crisis Center. 

Judy Davis, Crisis Center executive 
director, spoke before the auction 
about battery and assault. 

"I spoke about the Center's ser- 
vices," she said. "They're at a unique 
age where folks are making decisions 
about intimate relationships that will 
influence the rest of their lives." 

The Hall Governing Board auc- 
tioned off six couples including resi- 
dence hall staff; Classy Cat Sara Evans, 
freshman in family and consumer 
education; and Student Body Presi- 
dent Jason Heinrich, senior in indus- 
trial engineering. 

"We weren't selling the indi- 
vidual," Schehrer said. "We were sell- 
ing the entire date." 

Date packages included bowling in 
the K-State Student Union to dates of 
eating at Gold Fork Casual Food & 
Spirits and seeing Picasso at the Lapin 
Agile by K-State Theatre. 

Local businesses donated money 
and gift certificates for each date. HGB 
had hoped to raise $200 for the Crisis 
Center but ended the night with 
$2,000, Schehrer said. 

"I was so pleased with our resi- 
dents," Schehrer said. "All these poor 
college students were shelling out all 
this cash." 

Schehrer said she thought indi- 
viduals would pay about $20, but 
dates sold for more than $100. Aaron 
Kennedy, sophomore in interior archi- 
tecture, sold for $200. 

"I didn't see anything wrong with 
the buying part," Kennedy said. "We 
were raising money, and it was for a 
good cause." 

Susan Lytle, sophomore in second- 
ary education, won a date with Paul 
Ditmer, junior in elementary educa- 
tion, including dinner, a movie and a 
game of Pictionary, for $100 . 

"Paul's a friend of mine," she said. 
"Everyone was going for so much I 
couldn't let him go for less than $100." 

After she won, Ditmer agreed to 
cook beef stroganoff Feb 5. 

"It's just a dish I make," Ditmer 
said. "I'm pretty good at it." 

The other half of the double date 
included Jessi Messer, sophomore in 
family studies and human services, 
and her boyfriend, Joel Yourdon, 
sophomore in math and business, who 
bid $150 for Messer. 

"He didn't bid until the auction- 
eer said 'Going once, going twice,' " 
Messer said. "He wanted to see how 
high they would go." 

After dinner, the couples teamed 
against each other to play Pictionary. 

Ditmer said he hoped Lytle and 
Yourbon received their $250 worth. 

"Someone paid $100 for me," he 
said. "There's a little bit of pressure to 
have a good time. They paid $250 for 
a double date. That's a lot of money."

farmers. Center employees started the day at 

7 a.m. to feed livestock before going to class.

complicated, however many heifers had 

trouble during calving. "It's good to have two 

people," he said. " One to support the heifer or 

hold her tail back and one to pull. Once they 

(heifers) do it once they know what they are 

doing, and you don't have to watch them as 

close next calving season." (Photo by Jeff 


Living, Learning 


Kyle Colyer lived in a barn. A Purebred Beef Teaching 

Center employee, Colyer, senior in animal sciences and industry, lived 
and worked at the center with his roommates Sam Weinhold, senior in animal sciences 

and industry, and Andy Ledoux, jun- 
ior in animal sciences and industry. 

"You raise some eyebrows," 
Colyer said. "People are like, 'Barn? 
How do you live in a barn?' They don't 
know there is an apartment in here." 

Weinhold said the barn's corner 
apartment had a kitchen, living room, 
bathroom and bedroom, and the uni- 
versity paid room and board through 
the College of Agriculture. 

"It's small," Weinhold said. "We 
sleep in a bed three bunks high." 

Colyer said it felt like home. 

"I look at it as a place to hang my 
clothes up and lay my head down 
once in a while," he said. 

Herdsman Troy Marple, graduate 
student in animal sciences and indus- 
try, said the center had raised cattle 
since the late 1800s, and it had always 
been used as a teaching tool. 

"I'm usually pretty critical," 
Marple said. "I require my employees 
to have a farming or ranching back- 
ground. They have to have a basic 
knowledge of what they are doing, 
and we can teach the rest." 

While Colyer, Weinhold and 
Ledoux lived at the center, four other 
part-time employees also met qualifi- 
cation requirements set by Marple. He 
said those who had worked at the cen- 
ter the longest received the first oppor- 

tunity to live there. 

"This (center) is a place where 
you need to already know," Colyer 
said. "We'll be watching heifers calve 
by ourselves at night. If there's a prob- 
lem some- 
one can't 
sit there 
and hold 
your hand. 
People are

what they 
know, not

said the 
center had 
a 1-1/2 to 
two year waiting lists to live there. 

"It's an honor," Colyer said. "This 
isn't something you take for a lot of 
money. I could go work somewhere 
else for $9 an hour, but I'd rather work 
here for minimum wage." 

With about 350 cattle and 70 bulls 
at the center, Colyer said employees 
stayed busy, and work duties varied 
with the time of year. 

"We start the day at 7 a.m. It's a 
never-ending deal," he said. "There's 
always stuff going on all the time."

When employees began in the fall, 
cows and calves grazed in the pasture, 
giving the workers time to maintain 
the facilities, Colyer said. 

"We do a lot of maintenance to get 
ready for the year," he said. "We clean 
the barn and build fence." 

In October, after weaning babies 
and branding them, employees pre- 
pared for calving, which lasted from 
late January to March. 

"Last night (Feb. 4) Sam and I were 
up until two or three," Colyer said. 
"We had a heifer calve. Then another 
one. One calf didn't want to nurse so 
we had to give him some milk. This 
time of year the day never ends." 

Colyer said living an agricultural 
lifestyle differed from others' lives. 

"A lot of college kids have week- 
ends off," Colyer said. "It might be 
your time to check heifers, and every- 
one else is going to the bars, but you're 
not going to the bars." 

The center raised bulls for the Uni- 
versity Bull Sale in March, and sold 
cattle at the Kansas Beef Expo in 
Hutchinson, Kan. The center donated 
heifers for the Little American Royal 
Show, which gave participants the 
chance to show livestock without buy- 
ing the animal for the show. 

Colyer said working at the center 
rounded out his college experience. 

"When I'm 40 years old I can say, 
'Yeah, I worked there. I lived there,'" 
he said. "I wasn't just going to school, 
getting my diploma.' "

Colyer said the men chewed tobacco and

pretty damn nasty," Colyer said. "Andy went 

to my hometown (in Idaho). He bought a 

box of old stuff at a benefit auction, and that 

was in there. Later we were like, 'We can 

spit in that thing.' " (Photo by Jeff Cooper)

Senior Sidewalk encourages students to begin 


"Walk" usually made seniors think of crossing the 

stage for their diplomas, but a new program, KSU Student Senior 
Sidewalk, also came to mind. Starting with the fall 1999 graduating class, graduates 

and their parents could purchase a 
personalized granite stone in the 
Senior Sidewalk, which would run 
from the 17th Street campus entrance 
to Waters Hall. 

Senior Graduates Investing for 
Tomorrow sold the stones and 
donated the proceeds to the KSU 
Foundation. Each 4 by 8-inch stone 
cost $50 and had the student's name 
and graduating college engraved in it. 

About half the money went to ad- 
ministrative fees and the stones' costs, 
and half went to the student's college 
or the Office of Student Life, Andrea 
Stiens, GIFT co-chairperson, said. 

"We're working with the deans on 
where the money goes," Stiens, 
sophomore in hotel and restaurant 
management, said. "Mostly it is 
invested in scholarships." 

The sidewalk, estimated to take 
100 years to complete, aimed to bring 
the class gifts tradition back to K-State, 
Stiens said. In past years, graduating 
classes bought lamp posts, benches 
and a clock for the university, but as 
class sizes increased the idea faded. 

Sarah Brownback, Student 
Foundation president and senior in 
management information systems, 
planned for the sidewalk and said it 
was a good way to give back. 

"We try to instill the importance 
of giving back," she said. "If we get 
that going as a senior, they are more 
likely to give back as alumni." 

The idea developed in fall 1998 
when GIFT members saw the idea at 
other universities. After one semester 
of sales, GIFT had sold 140 bricks and 
set a goal for 250 by the 2000 school 
year's end. 

"After the first year, once the 
stones are laid, and people will see 
what it is," Brownback said. "Interest 
will grow from that." 

Interest in the stones had a greater 
effect on parents. Carline Frost bought 
a stone for her oldest daughter, Amy 
Frost, a fall 1999 graduate. 

"I think it is a wonderful idea," 
Carline Frost said. "Partially for us, 
we're a K-State family, being from 
Manhattan. It seemed like a special 
thing to do."

Decision affects teaching of 


The removal of evolution from the required science 

curriculum in Kansas' public schools sparked opposition by Student 

Senate and Faculty Senate. The Aug. 11 decision made by the Kansas State Board of 

Education prompted Student Senate ics, said. "We don't want people who

David Woodruff, Kansas State

tor and jun- House Speaker Robin Jennison (R-

nalism and mass communications, of proportion" because the board al- 
lowed it to grow in the media. Board 
member John Bacon said the decision 
only changed the way Kansas' schools 
taught evolution. 

"They were teaching it as fact, not 
as a theory," Bacon said. He added in 
previous standards, evolution was the 
only theory listed. "In my mind, we 
haven't prevented anyone from teach- 


The senates were concerned that

Student body president re-evaluates his own priorities

From participating in board meetings to planning a proposal for

"I don't want to be a king," he said. "I want to be a king-maker." 

Heinrich said public service resulted in a quest for a cause greater 
than his own personal needs.

be satisfied in public service," he said. "The desire to make things better 
is something every person has to have in public service or they will be 

For Heinrich, serving others had complications. 

"You get so caught up in projects and tasks, you forget to work on 
relationships, on your friendships," he said. "So many people are 
demanding of your time." 

Heinrich said public service came with personal costs. 

"There is the time, the loneliness," he said. "You don't get a lot of 
credit for what you do right, but you do get a lot of criticism for what 
you do wrong. It can be a thankless job at times." 

Heinrich said he spent about 60 hours a week in meetings and

planning for other meetings, proposals and events. 

"I want to give 100 percent to it," he said. "You can't really prepare 
for this. It challenges your values and what you believe in. I've learned 
a lot about myself and other people. I have grown a lot educationally 
and personally. I relate with others more effectively." 

Meeting and working with a variety of people and organizations 

became the best part of being student body president, Heinrich said. 

"I really enjoy helping people," Heinrich said. "To be involved and

Heinrich respected Eckert, too. 
When he searched for a running mate, 
he said he wanted a good balance 
between personalities and knowledge. 
Eckert fit the bill. 

"Gabe is a great speaker," he said. 
"He's very knowledgeable and he's 
committed to serving people." 

The two developed plans 
addressing what they determined to be 
students' most important issues. The 
plans focused on providing 
transportation options, developing parking alternatives, improving 
student health and increasing technology. They also made plans for 
distributing student fees, lowering the cost of education, increasing 
diversity awareness, offering more campus services and improving 
the overall system of the College of Education. 

"We're working on our campaign issues," Heinrich said. "The devil 
is in the details." 

Heinrich said his responsibilities could be accomplished through 
establishing priorities. 

"Anybody can do the things that I do," he said. "The challenging 
part is to maintain that balance between work and social life and to 
have a positive attitude every day. You have to keep in mind why you 
do the things you do."

The enemy laughed and ran to find a

Laser Chaser, new to Manhattan 
Town Center, gave students another 
option for spending free time between

Allen Raynor said it was hard to mea- 
sure the improvement of business at 
the mall, but because Laser Chaser's 
business did so well, he could assume 
the mall's business also increased. 

"He's here," Raynor said. "He's

are also visiting the food court and 
making impulse purchases." 

Derek Diehl, Laser Chaser owner, 
hoped to attract college students with 
extra time and cash. Yet a majority of 
Laser Chaser's customers were high 
school and middle school students. 

Eric Kirkendall, sophomore in pre- 
law and Laser Chaser employee, said 
one reason for the lack of college cus- 
tomers was cost. 

"Younger people pay with their 
parents' money," he said, "but college 
kids pay with their own money." 

Diehl said Laser Chaser attracted 
customers of all ages, but the design 
and skill involved especially appealed 

to adults. 

"I like to say that Laser Chaser is 
for people ages 6 to 52," said Diehl.

Brad Klaussen, Manhattan building official, said the 1996 City 
Ordinance 4958, proposed by city residents to improve the city's 
appearance, restricted furniture types citizens could keep outside. 

"If it's indoor furniture you can't have it outdoors," he said. "Like 
an easy chair that's clearly not supposed to be exposed to weather." 

Klaussen said the city commission instated the ordinance on the 
condition that it would be enforced on a complaint-only basis. 

"We're not out there cruising for couches," he said. "We'll only 
respond when neighbors complain." 

If the city received a complaint about a citizen's furniture, Klaussen 
said a notice would be sent to the property's owner. The owner would 
then have five days to remove the furniture. 

"If they get rid of it, that's the end of it," he said. "It's very rare that 
someone just doesn't do it." 

Neaderhiser said it wouldn't really bother him if someone told him 
he had to throw away his couch. Someone had actually tried to get rid 
of the couch once by placing it next to his complex's dumpster. 

"We don't know who exactly tried to throw it away," he said. "The 
trash people wouldn't take it, and someone else actually picked it back 
up and brought it back out here." 

Madhavan Ramunujam, graduate student in industrial engineering,

what happened to the leather couch outside his house at 1230 Vattier.

William Craig, Fred Whitehead took the floor of McCain 
Auditorium for a vocal battle of beliefs fueled by the 
clash between Christianity and atheism. 


The McCain Auditorium lobby overflowed with students. They 
waited for nearly 30 minutes to get a ticket and then to find their seats, 
delaying the 'Does God Exist?' debate from its original starting time. 
In front of an audience of 1,130 William Craig and Fred Whitehead 
debated God's existence Sept. 23. 

Craig, professor at the Talbot School of Theology, La Marida, Calif., 
argued for God's existence against Whitehead, assistant director of 
the Preceptorship Program at the University of Kansas Medical Center. 

After the debate, students answered a survey given by the sponsors 
to determine the debate's outcome. Ninety-four percent of students 
surveyed believed Craig won the debate. 

"Craig represented our side rather well," said Brent Watson, campus 
director for Campus Crusade for Christ, Craig's sponsor. "He had 
some intellectual resources that he used throughout the debate and 
proved to many that Christians are, in fact, intellectual people. " 

John Franson, campus director for Individuals for Free Thought, 
Whitehead's sponsor, referred to Craig as the hired gun for Christian 
groups' beliefs. Despite the uneven sides, he said the debate went well. 

"The debate was engaging, and it was still a good argument," he 
said. "I was impressed with how well the students communicated 
without abusing one another and without putting each other down." 

Franson said he hoped Individuals for Free Thought and other 
campus religious groups could work together in a similar event. 

"I enjoyed working with Campus Crusade for Christ," Franson said. 
"Even though we have different beliefs, we don't have to be enemies." 

Genee Gorup, freshman in biochemistry, who attended the debate, 
said each person should decide for themselves. 

"There are so many religions out there that believe in a higher 
power," Gorup said. "Each person should decide on a religion that 
makes sense to them and gives them a sense of peace." 

William Craig, Talbot school of 
Theology, presents his arguments 
for God's existence. Non-students 
paid $4 to watch the debate, while 
students only paid a 50-cent 
service fee to McCain Auditorium.

William Craig's five points proving 
God's existence. 

•Whatever begins to exist has a cause. The universe 
began to exist and has a cause. 

•The universe's fine-tuning is due to design. 

•If God does not exist, then moral objective values 
(our inborn knowledge of right and wrong) do not 
exist. Moral values do exist and, therefore, God exists. 

• In the resurrection of Jesus, the tomb was found 
empty the following Sunday, and a large number of 
believers and nonbelievers saw Jesus. 

•The original disciples believed in Jesus' resurrection 
in spite of every predisposition to the contrary. For 
those who believe in God and seek him, he will be

Recycling to help save the 



The convenient locations for recycling receptacles 

provided students and faculty the opportunity to increase their 
participation in recycling without extra effort. "It's like a social pressure," Elly Miller, 

junior in biology, said. "If you're 
walking to class with an empty can in 
your hand, you are more likely to put 
it in the recycling because people are 
watching. It's like in the bathroom 
when you wash your hands because 
people are in there." 

K-State introduced the recycling 
program in 1989, but it suffered 
cutbacks, which decreased the number 
of bins, John Woods, director of 
facilities, said. Ten years later, Woods 
improved the recycling program with 
help from the City University Fund 
donated by the city of Manhattan. 

The city, in coordination with the 
recycling program, provided K-State 
with $17,000 to pay student recycling 
workers' wages over the next four 
years. Another $6,000 would be used 
on pamphlets to educate students, 
faculty and administrators on the 
importance of recycling. 

K-State paid $33 per ton of trash 
taken to a landfill. For every ton of 
trash facilities recycled, university 
administration put that money back 

into the program. 

"In the 1999 school year we 
collected 87 tons of total recyclable 
materials," Woods said. "In July, 
August and September alone we 
collected 52 tons." 

In March 1999, Bob Skillin, 
general maintenance and repair 
technician and overseer of the 
recycling program, volunteered to 
lead the program. 

"If it was not for Bob Skillin it 
wouldn't have gone as far," Woods 
said. "He took the program and ran 
with it." 

Skillin relocated pre-existing bins 
for paper, plastic and cans, to places 
inside and outside buildings, making 
it more convenient to recycle. Skillin 
said placing recycling bins near 
trashcans made it easier for everyone, 
especially students. 

"The program seems to be 
working quite well," Skillin said. "The 
students seem to be using it quite 
successfully. The more bins we put up, 
the more they want."

Recruitment, programs encourage out-of-state 
students to pursue majors despite less family 
interaction, higher cost. 


Move-in day meant more than the next independent step after high 
school for out-of-state students. For Inez Haas, freshman in general 
engineering from Ethete, Wyo., the 14-hour drive home meant packing 
for months instead of weeks. 

"Most of my friends here go home for the weekend, but I probably 
won't go back before Thanksgiving or Christmas," Haas said. "The 
drawer and closet space in my dorm is pretty full because I had to 
pack all of my summer and fall clothes.." 

Out of a record-high enrollment of 21,543 students, 1,713 came from 
states other than Kansas, according to the 20th day tabulation reports. 

Allegra Toll, freshman in animal science and industry from Citrus 
Springs, Fla., said K-State offered a quality education in her major. 

"I've wanted to go here since I was eight and went through that 
stage of wanting to be a vet," Toll said. "I still want to work in the 
animal industry, and K-State's a good school for that." 

In many cases, the issue of cost contributed to a student's choice of 
whether or not to apply to out-of-state schools. According to the reports, 
Kansas residents paid $70 per credit hour, while non-Kansas residents 
paid $285 per credit hour. 

Julia Porter, sophomore in interior architecture from Battle Creek, 
Mich., joined the Midwest Student Exchange Program. The program 
allowed Porter to come to K-State for a tuition rate competitive to 
Michigan universities. It encouraged out-of state students to enroll by 
charging only 1.5 times their home state's tuition as long as students 
met certain expectations. 

"I have to stay in my major," she said. "Otherwise, I can't be in this 

University staff and students also had an influence on students' 
decisions to come to K-State. 

"The professors and the people here are great," Toll said. "I applied 
to five different schools and got accepted by all of them, but the K- 
State people were the only ones who seemed to actually want to know 
who I was."

As students throw their soap, clothes and quarters into 
washing machines, they hope for the best. Unfortunately, 
the clothes suffer the consequences. 


College students had to find a way to turn the pile of clothes on the 
floor into Monday morning's outfit. Some left the job to paid 
professionals. Others subjected their clothes to the dangers of bleach, 
high heat and their own skills. 

For off-campus students the most frequent choice was a coin- 
operated laundry. 

For the five coin-operated laundries in Manhattan, prices varied 
from $1 to $4.50 a load to wash. Wash Palace and Laundry Land also 
had a drop-off service that washed, dried and folded clothes for 

"There's a lot of people who don't have time to do laundry 
themselves," said Wash Palace owner David Wataha. "I'd say probably 
half or better of my (drop-off service) customers are college students." 

Most on-campus students washed their clothes in the laundry rooms 
located in the residence halls' basements. Skyler Harper, assistant 
director of housing and dining, said residence hall washers and dryers 
were the cheapest in Manhattan and the Big 12 Conference at 75 cents- 

"This is where they live," Harper said. "So we want to provide this 
service for our students." 

Forgotten laundry became a problem for students. 

Beth Simpson, junior in open option and employee at Wash Palace, 
had seen many abandoned clothes. 

"A lot of people go to Bobby T's and then forget their stuff here," 
Simpson said. "After a month, I give them away to churches." 

The Wash Palace attendants bagged the forgotten laundry and 
labeled the bag with the date. Usually, the owners of the forgotten 
laundry came back the next day, but if not, the clothes were given to 

Every student went through a first laundry experience, and many 
proved destructive. 

Elizabeth Short, freshman in psychology, spilled bleach on a brand- 
new black shirt. 

"1 was once informed that bleach is a mother thing and not to touch 
it," Short said. "I guess they were right."

back to school 



by maggie blunk 

Most students juggled jobs, Aggieville social 
life and school work. However, two non- 
traditional students bounced in between their 
jobs, their spouses, schoolwork and the 
responsibilities of being a parent. 

Career dreams and lifestyle choices altered 
for Tom Kilgore, 44, and Jeanette Schuler, 37, 
both seniors in secondary education, after their 
plans for the future changed. Kilgore, father of 
three teenagers, worked as a highway 
patrolman for 17 years before a back injury 
forced him to retire. 

"If I could still be doing that, I would," 
Kilgore said. "I can't do what I have done for 
17 years. What am I supposed to do for the next 

After the injury, Kilgore decided to go back 
to college and become a business and 
technology teacher. 

"I like to help other people," Kilgore said. 
"I like to help solve their problems. It makes 
me feel good to give." 

Schuler, mother of three, experienced a 
similar desire for a career change. After staying 
home with her children for 14 years, she decided 
to become an art teacher in order to give back 
to the community. 

"I want to contribute to society," Schuler 
said. "I didn't know my goals would change. 
But now I realize being a fine artist at home 
wasn't enough. I want to be around people and 
be able to help them." 

Both Kilgore and Schuler started back at K- 
State in the fall, continuing to be full-time 
parents and spouses as well as full-time 
students. Kilgore graduated from K-State with 
a degree in business administration in 1989. 
Schuler attended K-State for a few years before 
graduating with a fine arts degree from Old 

With daughter Kendra, Jeanette Schuler, senior in secondary 
education, makes a birthday cake. "My kids are my first 
priority," Schuler said of juggling her responsibilities. "I'm not 
doing it for the money. My kids understand it's time for mom 
to do something." (Photo by Steven Dearinger) 

Dominion University in Norfolk, Va., in 1984. 

Both said they provided real life advice 
otherwise not considered by younger students 
in their classes. 

"So many things are so basic," Kilgore said. 
"As I get older, I understand concepts better and 
have more practical experiences." 

Kilgore and Schuler said they acquired as 
much from students as students acquired from 
them. They hoped they could use the younger 
generation's views and thoughts to further their 
knowledge for better teaching practices. 

"I like to hear what the students have to 
stay," Schuler said. "I think it will help me in 
my teaching endeavors to better understand the 
thoughts my students will be thinking." 

Both families supported Kilgore and Schuler 
in their decisions, they said. 

"In the long run it will be worth it," Mark 
Schuler, Schuler 's husband, said. "It gives more 
opportunity for something to fall back on if I 
ever wanted to change jobs." 

Jennifer Kilgore, Tom's oldest daughter and 
sophomore in pre-health, said her dad brought 
schoolwork home instead of office work during 
the evenings. 

She and Kilgore took Introduction to 
Literature together Monday and Wednesday 
evenings in Fort Riley in the fall. 

"I am not embarrassed of my dad at all," 
Jennifer Kilgore said. "He is back in the school 
routine now, and he is awesome at English." 

Jennifer Kilgore said having class with her 
dad brought them closer to each other and gave 
them an opportunity to do more things together. 

"I am proud of my dad for being able to pick 
things up and move on," she said. "It's like with 
all changes, it only makes you stronger to get 
through it."

Halloween benefits 

by wendy schantz 

Elvis Presley, a cow and Garth from Wayne's 
World showed up to watch bands play Oct. 31, 
as part of a benefit to raise money for leukemia. 

The Halloween concert at Bobby T's Bar and 
Deli was a benefit for former K-State student 
Christine Base, diagnosed with acute 
lymphocytic leukemia Aug. 4. 

"I'm doing pretty good," Base said. "The 
doctors say I'm in remission." 

Rob Watson, Base's fiance and K-State 
employee, organized the event. 

"At first I was leery," Base said. "That's a lot 
to get together, a lot to get involved, but it 
worked really well." 

The $5 cover charge raised about $1,500. 
Base said part of that money would pay back 
her parents for an Oct. 9 bone marrow drive, an 
attempt to find a match for her, in Hutchinson, 
Kan. Local businesses had helped, but that 
money only covered the $60 bone marrow 
testing fee for about 60 people. When 150 came, 
Base's parents donated the extra money. The rest 
of the money from the benefit went to the 
American Bone Marrow Donor Registry. 

Watson's band, Southwind, and local bands 
Sharkey's Little Groove Box, Bitter Sane and Jeff 
and Vinny volunteered to play the concert for 

"All the bands were just real eager to jump 
to help out," Watson said. "I really appreciate 

what they did." 

Because of the disease, Base had not been 
able to see Southwind play until the benefit. 
She said she was excited to finally see her fiance 
in concert. 

"It meant a lot to me," she said. "I haven't 
been able to. I feel like I haven't been really 
supporting him." 

Bobby T's donated the space and local 
merchants donated door prizes, including gift 
certificates for Rad-a-Tat Tattoo, Rose Muffler 
House and Dillons. Watson said everyone's 
support helped the concert run smoothly. 

"Everything flowed in the proper channel," 
Watson said. "I've never done anything like 
this. You just have to get in there and do it." 

Jerry Turner, member of Southwind, asked 
the audience where else they could drink beer 
with their friends on a Sunday night for a good 

"I think it's a pretty good idea," Jerod 
Merritt, senior in computer information 
systems, said. "Anytime you get to help 
someone out, I think it's good." 

Watson said although he disliked the 
circumstances, he liked being able to do 

"It seems like the natural thing to do," 
Watson said. "It's just something I wish I wasn't 
having to do."

Because of high ticket demand 
and increased football popularity, 
KSU Stadium expanded to hold an 
additional 7,000 fans. The $13.3- 
million project included adding 
chairback seats and skyboxes. 
"The development of the Big 12 
Conference brought a heightened 
interest, demand and excitement," 
Max Urick, athletic director, said.

Larger than life 

A $13.3-million expansion of the KSU Stadium began in fall 1998 and 1,1 50 
pounds of steel, 32 miles of wiring, one mile of 18-inch pipe and 7,000 seats 
later, the stadium's seating capacity increased to 48,600. The stadium, lacking 
only minor details, opened Sept. 11 for the first game of the season.. 

The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics started the expansion in re- 
sponse to demand from students and fans, Max Urick, athletic director, said. 
"Since 1993, history had shown trends that season ticket sales were on an 
upwards climb and had not peaked out," Urick said. "Games were sold out, 
and there were waiting lines." 

Urick said the expansion included everything from repairing infrastruc- 
ture to adding suites. 

"It provides an opportunity for more people to come to the games and 

enjoy them in a 
higher level of qual- 
ity," he said. "It is 
positive not just for 
visual aesthetics, but 
it generated rev- 
enue and attracted 
people to Manhat- 

Jon Anderson, 
junior in construc- 
tion science and 
management, said 
the expansion put 
K-State in the top 
tier of collegiate ath- 
letics, but he said he 
noticed imperfec- 

"I got a chance to 
sit up there," Ander- 
son said. "I couldn't 
see the JumboTron 
and the speakers 
don't point upward 
so I couldn't hear the 
game, but it's a won- 
derful view." 

In October 1997, 
Urick said he pro- 
posed increasing 
student fees to pay 
for one third of the 
stadium. The student body voted against Urick's proposals. 

"Not everyone wants to go to the games," said Travis Wymer, ICAT board 
member and sophomore in golf course management and resources. "Not ev- 
eryone should have to pay. It was good it turned out that way." 

However, Wymer said he heard complaints from students about seating. 
"They are sitting in the grass because there are not enough seats," he said. 
"But there would be more seats if they would have voted the other way." 
Urick said he was not surprised with the student outcome, just disappointed. 
"We just scaled back the project," he said. "We didn't eliminate anything." 
Still, Urick called the new, expanded stadium exciting. 
"The first game was a night game, and I was sitting on the west side," 
Urick said. " I made a point to go to the east side to see the mass of purple. My 
palms got sweaty. I got a lump in my throat and a sense of satisfaction about 
what was taking place. I felt the drama of the moment."

to feel connected to the action on the field," 
he said. "For a 50,000 seat stadium totie

It looked the same on the outside as any other white run-down, 
two-story house. On the corner of Fourth and Moro streets, however, 
the inside was jam-packed with recording equipment known only to 
bands and musicians. 

For $10 an hour, Jay Machiela, senior in human ecology and mass 
communications, digitally recorded about 16 bands, as well as his own 
modern rock band, Knee Deep, in his home. Machiela learned to record 
through trial and error with microphones, wires and instruments all 
crammed into his basement. 

"When Knee Deep did its first recording, we went to a digital studio, 
and I got interested in it from watching the engineer," Machiela said. 
"That's when I got my first experience in it. I learned it by making 
some crappy-sounding records." 

Machiela said he spent about $4,000 on equipment such as a Tascam 
mixer, tube pre-amplifiers and an analog-to-digital converter and got 
his start by recording demos for local bands. 

"A guy doing a vocal demo was trying to get a gig as a singer," 
Machiela said. "That was the first time anybody ever paid me to record. 
It turned out pretty good. It was just kind of weird having him singing 
with just me in the room and having no music on." 

Tyler Feeny, Manhattan resident and bass player and vocalist for

studios, but said he considered Machiela the most professional. 

"Jay did a three-song demo for us," Feeny said. "Jay runs everything 
through a computer and he knows what he's doing. Most of the other 
times that I've recorded, it was in shambles." 

Machiela's roommate, Thad Reist, said having a recording studio

Campaign shows most K-State students drink 


A new campus program helped prove irresponsible 

drinking was an avoidable experience for college students. Funded by 

the Kansas Health foundation for $450,000 

gathered information about students' 
drinking activities and then publicized 
the findings in Collegian advertise- 
ments. The information came from a 
spring 1999 Project Wellness campus 
survey. According to the project's ads, 
61 percent of students had zero to five 
drinks while partying. 

"The vision of Project Wellness is to 
make the K-State campus a healthy and 
safe one by reducing alcohol-related 
harm to the student body," Doug 
Newton, Project Wellness coordinator, 
said. "In general, society, along with the 
students themselves, often over- 
estimate alcohol use among college 

Richard Maxwell, junior in business 
administration, said he did not find the 
campaign necessary. 

"I don't see how anyone can tack a 
number on something and call it a 
problem," Maxwell said. "I think a lot 
of people have more than five drinks, 
and it doesn't even register. I wouldn't 
consider that alcohol abuse as long as 
they don't regret anything they do, and 
they can still function normally." 

Some students expressed skepti- 
cism on the project's validity. 

"The ad in the paper said they 
surveyed 1,297 students," Brandi 
Kirkland, freshman in arts and sciences, 
said. "I think people would accept the 
results more if they saw a number that 

over four and half years, Project Wellness 

made them feel more represented." 

Stephen Benton, counseling and 
educational psychology professor, said 
the survey sample adequately repre- 
sented students. 

"We went to associate deans of each 
college, excluding the Salina campus, 
and asked them to identify under- 
graduate courses that were proportion- 
ately representative of the student 
body in terms of gender and class," he 
said. "The surveys were administered 
in those courses. Representation is the 
key, and our information is represen- 
tative in terms of demographics." 

Riley County Police Department 
Lieutenant John Doehling said he had 
doubts about the campaign. 

"One of the main problems with 
the program is that ads in a paper 
aren't going to influence students," he 
said. "It's not a strong enough pressure 
to change habits." 

Newton disagreed. He said 
Northern Illinois University had a 44- 
percent decrease in binge drinking 
during nine years. Because K-State 
students participated in the annual 
spring survey over four and a half 
years, Newton said the benefits would 
not be seen for awhile. 

"We're going to have to wait and 
see if next year's numbers go down," 
Newton said. "If they do, then that's 
one measure of success."

New food court, relocations, new entrances cause 
confusion while indoor, outdoor modifications bring K- 
State Student Union up-to-date 


Workers completed the majority of K-State Student Union's $11.4- 
million renovation during the school year. Funds for the construction 
came from a 20-year bond, paid by student privilege fees. The Union 
remained open throughout the project, from June 1998 to summer 2000. 

"The smell of tar in the air bothers me, but I'm glad they're making 
changes," Rachel Lusco, graduate student in public relations said. "A 
lot of the improvements really look good." 

Feelings were mixed about how the renovation has affected campus. 

"It's been a different story around here every time I come into work," 
said Travis Johnson, information counter employee and senior in 
electrical engineering. "One day we're changing locations, the next 
we aren't. I'll be happy when it's all done." 

The renovation process pleased at least one Union employee. 

"The students have worked with us well," said Jack Connaughton, 
the Union's associate director. "Everybody has been understanding." 

During renovations, the Union Bookstore moved its inventory from 
the main and ground floors to the second floor, losing 2,000 square 
feet of space. When the bookstore reopened in its original location, it 
had 500 square feet more floor space and a handicap-accessible elevator. 

Several new vendors moved in to the food court area, including 
Burger King, Taco Bell and Chick-Fil-A. The dining room moved to 
the food court's north side. 

About 60 percent of the budget went toward upgrading the Union's 
infrastructure, including plumbing, electricity and fire protection. 

"The result of all this is it will be better protected," Dave Abner, 
building engineer, said. "When the project is over, we will have a much 
safer building."

With the coming of the year 2000, debates about the 
millennium's starting date arose throughout the world. Some 
said the millennium began Jan. 1 , 2000; others said it would 
not be until 2001 . • Still, more than 2 million people met the 
new year's arrival in New York City's Times Square, thousands 
gathered in Rome for Pope John Paul ll's traditional benediction 
at the Catholic church's celebration and tourists flocked to 
Gisborne, New Zealand, to celebrate in the first New Year's 
Eve party featured on world news. Whether or not the New 
Year started the millennium, the world celebrated the turn of 
a century. • While most of the world partied into the New 
Year, some people feared the possible hazards of Y2K. The 
millennium bug sparked some homeowners to fill their homes 
with enough non-perishable food supplies and bottled water 
to support their families for up to six months. The expected 
disasters never came, leaving people in between wondering 
about results of media hype and skepticism. • Even K- State 
spent $100,000 to $200,000 upgrading computer systems 
in preparation for Y2K. The new year left students looking 
back at past years. Students realized no one in their lifetimes 
would ever see another millennium, and few would see 
another century. This special Y2K-State section, continues at 
the end of each section, allowing students to see K-State from 
a century and a decade ago, by turning back the covers for 
a glance at K-State's 1 900 and 1 990 yearbooks.

Taking a Tropical Field Ecology class through Emporia State 
University, K-State students Karoline Jarr and Jessi Brunson, 
roommates and seniors in biology, studied at the Bahamian Field 
Station in San Salvador Dec. 28 to Jan. 6. 

Although the trip's focus centered on the class, which included 
lab studies and snorkeling, they also hiked and explored 
underwater caves. Aside from outdoor activities Jarr and Brunson, 
11 Emporia State students and their professor, celebrated the new 
year at a local bar, The Short Stop. 

After New Year's Eve, Brunson and her fiance Ryan McKnab, 
Emporia State student, got married on the beach. 




At Columbus Point Jan. 4, Brunson and McKnab exchanged 
wedding vows during their ceremony. 

"They met in the Bahamas two years ago in the exact same 
class," Jarr said. "They planned to go back and get married where 
they met." 

Jarr said the wedding day required little preparation. 

"We didn't do much," she said. "It was impromptu. We tied 
cans to the truck and we realized that she didn't have any flowers, 
so we went to Columbus Monument and cut wildflowers for her 

The couple's witnesses included McKnab's professor, David 
Edds, and Edds' wife Tracy.

At Club Ed, Jarr continued a tradition by 
writing her name on the ceiling Dec. 29. 

"It was the day after we found out K-State 
won the bowl game," she said. "I wrote, 
'Karoline Jarr, Manhattan, Kan. Go K-State.' " 

Jarr and the class ate authentic Bahmean 
food, she said. f 

"We had conch, which is like chewy 
calamari and grouper, " she said. "They're 
both fish." 

Jarr said New Year's Eve in San Salvador 
almost went unnoticed. 

"New Year's isn't a big deal there," Jarr 
said. "We kind of decided for ourselves when 
to countdown, and just started celebrating. 
We took a picture of the TV because it was 
not working, and we thought that was funny 
because of Y2K." 

On New Year's Day, the ecology class 
went snorkeling at Grahm's Harbor.

students to help capture New Year's

received a disposable camera to help 
capture the memories we could not. 
Additional coverage of New Year's can 
be found on the CD-ROM. 


From her cousin's mansion just outside 
of New Orleans, Maggie Lea, junior in 
marketing and international business, 
watched a yacht parade float down a 
nearby river as fireworks exploded 

"I wasn't really excited about New Year 's 
because it's not really the millennium, " Lea 
said. "It was fun, though, because we were 
there for a family reunion." 

At midnight Maggie's cousin raised a 
champagne toast for the new year. 

"My cousin's wife, Renee, is from France

After K-State beat Washington, 24-20, in the 
Culligan Holiday Bowl in San Diego, Davis, 
Scott, Barker and Houdyshell celebrated Dec 

Barker estimated that 17,000 K-Staters 
attended the game, but most were parents. 

"You saw few young kids there," he said. 
"It's funny to see people your dad's age and 
mom's age at the bars drinking with all their 
K-State buddies. Students aren't the only ones 
living up the football season." 

On New Year's Eve Barker said he and his 
friends started the day with lunch at Sharkies, 
a bar on Manhattan Beach, outside of Los 

"We started watching 24 hours live on CNN 
to see what was happening around the world," 
he said. "Then we started drinking and playing 
beach volleyball." 

That evening on Hermosa Beach pier, Scott 
and Barker shook two bottles of champagne 
and sprayed everyone before he and his friends 
got on stage, Barker said. 

"We bribed the security guard with liquor," 
he said. "And then he was like, 'Don't get on 
the stage, don't get on the stage,' but we did 
anyway because we didn't care. Everybody 
was looking at us because they thought it was 
midnight, and they started to cheer." 

Barker said there was not an official 

"It was like an Aggieville type with the 
streets lined with bars," he said. "We could hear 
all the bars going through their countdowns." 

Barker said the mayor counted down the 
New Year on the stage. 

"We did a count down, he said. "People 
were spraying champagne everywhere. We 
started cheering and celebrating and dancing 
in the streets." 

From 01-01-00-dated party hats to Victoria's Secret's $10 million 
millennium bra, companies nationwide capitalized on the year 2000. 

In between the extremes, Cheerios Millenios, Y2K sweatshirts and 
year 2000 champagne labels had consumers buying special products, 
many they would use only once, to help remember the millennium. 

"Champagne companies used it to their advantage," said Brandon 
Munz, a manager of Dean Wholesale Liquor and senior in construction 
science and management. "Champagne sales went through the roof. 
They increased 400 percent from last year." 

Munz said champagne prices began rising in early November and 
increased 10 to 40 percent. 

"More expensive $100 wines increased to $125-$140, but people 
didn't notice because they don't know how much wine normally costs, 
he said. "They weren't buying it because of the taste or because they 
liked it, but because it was the millennium. " 

Munz said he did not worry about running out of champagne, as 
many people had predicted liquor stores nationwide might. 

"Everyone wanted to celebrate the millennium," Munz said. "I 
guess they thought they needed champagne for that." 

The millennium added something extra to must-have Christmas 
toys and games, said Katie Jasper, assistant manager at KB Toys and 
senior in communication sciences and disorders. 

"We had the Millennium Barbie, Millennium Monopoly, the 
Millennium Furby and a millennium gorilla," she said. "Everything 
but the gorilla sold out, and we still have requests." 

Jasper said the store sold more millennium gifts than predicted. 

"I expected the Barbie to sell because of the collectors," she said. "I 
didn't think the Monopoly would sell so many. Some people want to 
know what they can do to get Monopoly or something," she said. "Like 
give us extra money, but it's out of our hands." 

Peter Jennings' book "The Century" sold more than any other book 
in its category, Chris Domenico, Varney's Book Store's special orders 
supervisor, said. 

"It's a historical look at the century, and it has a lot of great pictures," 
he said. "It sold about 40 or 50 copies, and that's a lot for a $60 book." 

Domenico said buying books for Christmas gifts remained the top 
reason for people's purchases. 

"Students really weren't interested in them for themselves," he said. 
"They were buying for their parents or their grandparents. The ESPN, 
though, we sold to a lot of college guys." 

ESPN's "Sport Century" covered the top athletes from the past 100 
years. Domenico said mostly women buying for their husbands or sons 
purchased the book. 

"I don't know if we'll keep selling books into the New Year or not," 
he said. "Of course, after Christmas you hit a dead spot, but I don't 
know if there will still be a lot of millennium hype or not. I guess I just 
have to wait and see."

Companies nationwide marketed their 
products to the year 2000 and the 
millennium. Locally, Manhattan consumers 
found millennium products, including 
Budweiser beer and Cognac, at Dean Liquor 
to yo-yos, coffee mugs, time capsules and 
candy at Wal-Mart. According to an M&M/ 
MARS representative, because MM stands 
for 2000 in roman numerals, M&M's were 
the only candy that could make such a close 
connection to 2000. Therefore, the Red and 
Yellow M&Ms declared M&Ms as the official 
candy of the new millennium. (Photo by

Y2K turned out to be nothing at all. 

Y2K began in computers' early days. In order to save 
memory on computers, programmers squeezed as much 
as possible into limited disk capacities. 

Computer hardware and software stored the date in a 
six-digit format. People feared computer chips would read 
the year 2000 as "00," thinking it was 1900 again, and cause 

"Many people thought Y2K was a big spook," Jane 
Rowlett, director of unclassified affairs and university 
compliance and K-State's Year 2000 coordinator, said. "But 
we wouldn't have been able to function without the 
preparation we went through." 

Many people thought companies blew the entire Y2K 
phenomenon out of proportion. 

"I was amazed," Randy Slover, director of facilities 
building maintenance, said. "The price of bottled water went 
from 50 cents to 59 cents and the shelves were almost 

However, many officials found Y2K spurring upgrades 
of technology and equipment beneficial. 

"Y2K has been a blessing in disguise," said Curt Wood, 
finance director and Y2K coordinator for the city of 
Manhattan. "We spent $250,000 on backup generators for 
the sewer and the airport that we should have already had 
in case of other emergencies." 

Rowlett said the state required the university to submit 
monthly reports about equipment check points and 
assessment. She said 8,000 staff hours clocked in more than 
three years seemed timely. Kosch said she believed the 
preparation unofficially cost between $100,000 to $200,000. 

On Jan. 1, 2000, America and the rest of the world 
discovered the day equaled any other day. Glitches found 
in various companies and in various countries remained 

A glitch in Microsoft's Hotmail e-mail accounts caused 
a display problem in e-mails sent during or before October 
1999. Mail sent during that time displayed the year 2099. 
Another problem hit thermostats used to control the heating 
system in an apartment complex in South Korea, forcing 
residents to shiver into the New Year. 

Even though the amount of money and effort people put 
into their organizations seemed extravagant, people felt 
relieved everything survived and excited to know they were 
prepared for any emergency at any time. 

"When no one was having problems around the world that 

we did prevented a lot of problems down the road. I feel very 
good about our effort and feel it was well worth it."

As the fear of the Y2K bug struck the world, 
some individuals doubted their car's 
reliability, the operation of Automatic Teller 
Machines or the assurance of public 
services, while others found the hype 
unwarranted. Here, the illustration shows 
the fears people had about computers

Class Song, 


The last class of the century, the best cli*s by the way; 
For four long years we've been here, but we can not 
always stay. 
We've been faithful to the last, 
A.11 examinations passed, 
But commencement time is coming, and goodbye wc 
soon must sav. 


When the class of nauguty-naught shall gradual*. 
Then the honors shall be oars, so grand and great. 

There'll be functions every night, 

With the final day in sight, 
When the class of naughty-naught will graduate. 

We came lure young and innocent, aghast at all the 

si gilts. 
But wc arc in out glory now, the rest are lesser lights. 
Wc have passed our Freshman tears. 
And our Soph'morc pride and fears, 
And our Junior chapel speaking and at last we're on the 


Some took the Ag. course where they farm and balanced 

rations feed ; 
Seme took the General Science: course to meet titbit 
daily need. 
Some a3pired to learn to cook ; 
Others engineering took. 
But our class love siilt will bind us in the paths of life 

The class of 1900's song states they are 'The 
last class of the century, the best class by the 
way. For four long years we've been here, but 
we can not always stay" Their song appeared 
after their portraits in the yearbook. 

Racist acts against 25-30 Puerto Rican students 
began after they received permission to host San 
Juan Night at Bushwacker's. When they arrived, 
they found signs stating "fu--k San Juan" that 
had been hung up by some employees. After the 
event, students protested the establishment and 
gathered more than 700 signatures from people 
who agreed Bushwacker's had discriminated. 
They sent the signatures to local politicians and 
the Commission of Civil Rights. (Photo by

living her life 


As the in-between sister, Courtney Sedlock lives with 
her older brother, younger sister while mediating fights 
between them, maintaining her own personality. 


With an older brother and a younger sister, Courtney Sedlock, junior 
m family studies and human services, lived in between. 

After attending Johnson County Community College for one year, 
Sedlock transferred to K-State when her sister, Kirsten, sophomore in 
arts and sciences, entered as a freshman. Although Courtney intended 
to live with friends, plans changed. 

"My brother (Scott, senior in sociology) was already here," she said. 
"My parents bought us a house. I don't want to live with them forever, 
but for school I like it. If we lived apart we'd still love each other, but 
it's different when you live together. I think further in life we'll have 
fun stories." 

While Sedlock said she thought her siblings had similar 
personalities, she considered herself different from them. 

"Scott and Kirsten are so much alike," she said. "That's why they 
fight so much. They both ended up buying the same T-shirt , and they're 
like, 'No. Why do you do that?' It's like Kirsten in Scott's body." 

Assuming the big brother role, Scott looked out for his younger 
sisters, Sedlock said. 

"He's very protective of my social life, especially with boys," she 
said. "He doesn't want us bringing home any weirdos." 

Being the oldest Sedlock, Scott said he wanted to teach his sisters 
from his experiences. 

"I've done some dumb things that I don't want them to do," he 
said. "I try to tell both of them so they can learn from me, and not go 
do it themselves." 

However, Sedlock said she was not an overly concerned older sister 
when it came to her relationship with Kirsten. 

"She can take care of herself," Sedlock said. "I watch out for her, 
but I know she can handle herself. She's actually protective of me, and 
she's younger so that's kind of weird." 

Kirsten said people always assumed she was the older sister. 

"People thought I was older, so I started acting older," Kirsten said. 
"She's smaller than me. I don't want people taking advantage of her." 

Sedlock said she got irritated with Kirsten's big sister role-playing. 

"It bugs me a lot of the time," she said. "Kirsten will say something 
and try to be all protective, and I'm like, 'I'm older.' But I know it's just 
because she loves me."

between her sister Kirsten, 
sophomore in arts and sciences, 
and her brother, Scott, senior in

in a house their parents bought. 
Although the bills were listed under 
Kirsten's name, Sedlock paid the 
bills each month. "I know I'm going 
to get the money for the check," 
she said. "I don't have to worry 
about Ifving with roommates who

After an April 8 Student Tribunal Hearing, 
Election Chair Joe Ashley was found guilty for 
tampering with the March 15 runoff election 
votes between Student Body President Jason 
Heinrich and former presidential candidate Leo 
Prieto. Prieto filed a grievance against Ashley 
for tabulating the runoff results before the polls 
closed, allowing Heinrich and running mate 
Gabe Eckert to campaign near residence halls 
and the Election Committee's prior dismissal of 
election day violations. The hearing found 
Ashley guilty of the first complaint, and as part 
of his punishment he wrote a "plan of 
solicitation of advice," which addressed how 
elections could be run more fairly in future 

Seven Manhattan residents filed a civil suit 
against the city of Manhattan in the U.S. Dis- 
trict Court for the district of Kansas. The suit 
objected to the Ten Commandments monolith's 
placement in front of City Hall's main entrance. 

Manhattan city commissioners eventually 
agreed to a $12,000 settlement to cover legal fees 
Sept 8. Donated by the Eagles service club, the 
monolith had been a gift to the city in the 1950s. 

After the 1998-1999 school year ended 
Acacia fraternity had its official recognition 
revoked from the university for five years. 

The university brought sanctions against 
the fraternity after a fall pledge reported 
substance abuse and human rights violations, 
as well as hazing violations. 

The official complaint list included a total 
of nine violations. Violations concerned the 
university hazing policy, physical abuse 
violations, psychological abuse charges, 
improper obligations and requirements, 
university substance abuse policy violations 
and human rights code violations. 

Acacia members admitted to violating the 
substance abuse policy. Barb Robel, Greek 
Affairs adviser, said there would be no appeal 
because the national fraternity agreed there 
were violations 

The penalty prohibited Acacia from using 
the university name or facilities, prevented it 
from being recognized as a K-State fraternity 
and disallowed it in university publications. 

Heavy rain and thunderstorms in northeast 
Kansas caused flash flooding throughout June. 

Jefferson and Nemaha counties were both 
heavily affected by the violent weather. At 
several rimes, the rain fell more than an inch 
per hour. 

Near the Nemaha River, crews worked to 
surround homes with a wall of sandbags to 
keep out the rising river. Rising water caused a 
trailer park in Seneca, Kan., to be evacuated. 
Authorities recorded no accounts of injuries or 
extensive damage. 


Thirteen people died and 28 
more were injured in the 
deadliest school shooting in U.S. 
history. Eric Harris and Dylan 
Klebold, 1999 seniors at 
Columbine High School, toted 
guns and bombs through the 
school's halls April 20, killing as 
many as they could before taking 
their own lives. 

Columbine housed about 
2,000 students in Littleton, Colo., 
an upper-middle class suburb of 
35,000 outside Denver. 

The gunmen targeted ath- 
letes and minorities. 

Harris and Klebold were 
members of the Trench Coat 
Mafia, a group of trench-coat- 
wearing students who clashed 
with the school's athletes. Some 

were known for honoring Adolf 
Hitler, speaking German in the 
halls and wearing swastikas on T- 
shirts. Police found a hand- 
written diary, dating back a year, 
with detailed plans for the attack, 
and April 20, Hitler's bithday, 
marked as a day to "rock 'n' roll." 

Students said the gunmen 
showed no mercy. Anyone who 
cried or moaned, they shot again. 

Dave Sanders, business 
teacher and coach at Columbine 
for 24 years, was shot twice in the 
chest while directing students to 
safety. Students performed first 
aid, but to no avail. He died. One 
gunman asked 17-year-old Cassie 
Bernall if she believed in God. She 
said yes. She was shot and killed 
April 20.

When he stood on top of the Dev 
Nelson Press Box at the Nebraska game, 
everyone knew Willie the Wildcat. 

When he worked as a KJCK-FM 94.5 
disc jockey, everyone knew Jamie Rock. 

But when he walked to class as a 
dark-haired, 6-foot student at K-State, 
not so many people knew Jamie Adcock. 

"As a kid and up to high school he 
was very shy, quiet and introverted," 
Jamie's father, Jon Adcock, said. "But 
when he put that head on, he was a 
different person, and there wasn't 
anything he wouldn't try to do to get 
people fired up."

accident a day earlier. For the past 2-1/2 
years, Adcock had been Willie. 

As Willie the Wildcat, Adcock 
performed at football games and men's 
basketball games, but he spent additional 
time appearing at other events as well. 

"He just really gave so much of his 
own time as an ambassador to the 
university as Willie the Wildcat," Max 
Urick, K-State athletic director, said. 

Adcock performed at some of the 
biggest games in K-State history, 
including K-State's victory over rival 
Nebraska in 1998, the Big 12 
Championship game in 1998 and the 
Fiesta Bowl in 1997. 

Adcock retired from his role as Willie 
the Wildcat at the Big 12 Championship

Saratoga he purchased in April, 
Kennedy left Caldwell, N.J., at 8:39

Rory's wedding in Cape Cod. 

Problems began 20 miles from 
his destination when he turned 
right and began ascending, leveled 
and then turned right again, before 
the plane began its fatal fall at more 
than 10 times the normal speed.

Jessie Lee Brown Foveaux, Manhattan 
resident, died at a hospital in Duluth, Minn., 
Oct. 23. Her 100 years of life experiences, 
however, lived on. 

In 1997, Foveaux's autobiography, "Any 
Given Day," made her one of Kansas' richest 
and most famous writers at 98. Warner Books 
purchased the manuscript of Foveaux's life 
story for $1 million. 

The book, intended for Jessie's children 
and grandchildren, served as a guide to help 
her family live and learn from her own 
mistakes, Marion Foveaux, Jessie's seventh 
child, said. 

Foveaux left behind eight children, 16 
grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and 
seven great-great-grandchildren. 

Golf champion Payne Stewart, 42, Orlando, 
Fla., and four other passengers died when the 
Learjet carrying them crashed two miles west 
of Mina, S.D., Oct. 25. On its way to Dallas, the 
plane left Orlando at about 8:20 a.m. and drifted 
on auto-pilot for hours before running out of 

Officials said a pressurization failure may 
have occurred, which could cause passengers 
to lose consciousness or die from oxygen 
deficiency if a door or window seal broke. 

Stewart won 18 tournaments worldwide 
and was known for wearing knickers and a 
tam-o'-shanter hat on the golf course. 

Walter Payton, 45, a former Chicago Bears' 
running back, died Nov. 1 while awaiting 
transplant for a rare liver disease, primary 
sclerosing cholangitis. The Hall of Famer rushed 
for 16,726 yards in his 13-year career, making 
him the NFL's all-time rushing leader. 

Payton almost played college football for 
K-State. But while waiting at the bus stop in 
1971 to come to Manhattan, a recruiter from 
Jackson State University in Jackson, Miss. 
talked to him and changed his mind. 

Tina Higley and Michele Smith became the 
first female students in the field of mechanical 
engineering technology to obtain degrees from 

The degree, which had been offered at 
Salina since 1991, was predominated by males. 

Smith said her motivation as a student was 
not paving the way for women, but rather 
obtaining a degree. 

Higley said she was surprised to hear the 

"I knew that I was the first in a long time, 
but I didn't know we were the first ones," 
Higley said. 

Both students said they have jobs lined up 
in their field after graduation. Higley would go 
to work in Colorado, and Smith would work in 
McPherson, Kan. by Nick Bratkovic

University officials signed a $12-million contract with 
PepsiCo Nov. 4, which eliminated all Coca-Cola products on 
campus beginning Jan. 1. The deal included $1 million up front 
to the university. The program supported K-State libraries, 
student scholarships, housing and dining services, 
intercollegiate athletics, the K-State Student Union and other 
campus programs. Pepsi Cola Bottling in Marysville, Kan., 
would supply K-State's Pepsi products during the 10-year 

Two weeks after Coke products were eliminated from 
campus, Pepsi decreased the number of vending machines 
selling 12-oz. cans for 55 cents to 16, and replaced all others 
with machines selling 20-oz. plastic bottles for $1. Of the 
machines on campus, 16 still sold cans. Because cans had a 
longer shelf life than bottles, the can machines were located in 
more remote locations where the machines were used less.

City Commissioner Karen McCulloh would 
remain in office. 

McCulloh received 62 percent of 7,049 votes

by the recall committee had the required 2,237 

The committee filed the petition in June, 
disagreeing with McCulloh's April 10 vote to 
remove a Ten Commandments monolith from

Rose, recall committee chairperson, said it 
had been a hard struggle because his group was 
not made up of career politicians. 

Rose said he thought the vote would go 
more in their favor, but that he will accept the 
final results. 

"I accept the will of the people - the voters," 
he said. 

McCulloh said she would have liked to see 
a higher voter turnout than 32 percent but was 
happy citizens did the sensible thing.

hard calls," she said. "If they don't agree, they 
should wait till the next general election to oust 
you." By Kellee Miller

Baseball pitcher Brett Reid was arrested on 
a warrant for alleged rape Jan. 11. Although 
released the next day on $5,000 bond, the team

He lost his scholarship and no longer attended 

The Kansas City Star released the first of a 
three part series, "AIDS in the Priesthood" Jan. 
30. Judy Thomas, 1988 alumnae and general 
assignment reporter, wrote the story. More than 
3,000 priests responded to a survey for the 
article. The Star was first to uncover the issue. 
The article said priests died of AIDS four times 
the rate of the general U.S. population, and 
since 1987, at least 16 priests in Missouri and 
Kansas had died of the disease. 

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick 
Thomas, 33, died Feb. 8 from a pulmonary 
artery blood clot after a Jan. 23 car accident. The 
accident paralyzed Thomas and killed his

way to Kansas City International Airport, in 
Kansas City, Mo. 

Charles M. Schulz died Feb. 12 in his sleep

The life story of Erin Brockovich, 1978 K- 
State student, was released as a movie starring 
Julia Roberts March 17. 

"Erin Brockovich" details Brockovich's 
career as a legal secretary, uncovering cancer- 
causing pollution hidden by power company 
Pacific Gas and Electric. Brockovich eventually 
won the direct-action suit with a $333 million 
settlement, the largest in U.S. history. 

The movie was No. 1 in its first weekend, 
making $28 million. 

Head basketball coach Tom Asbury 
resigned the day after the Wildcats' final game, 
in the Phillips 66 Big 12 Tournament. Asbury 
had coached the team for six years, and it was

March 14 Athletic Director Max Urick 
announced Jim Wooldridge, Chicago Bulls 
assistant coach, would take Asbury's place. 


Wildcat Futons Plus, 607 N. 
11th St., caught fire Feb. 1. The 
fire started due to an over-heated 
electrical cord, said Donald 
Francis, city of Manhattan fire 
marshal. No one was in the store. 
Owner Kevan Proctor and his 
daughter, Katie, had been in the 
store all morning and left about 
noon to go to the Mini Mart 
Convenience Grocery Store next 
door. On their way back to the 
store, Proctor noticed the fire. 

"I sent Katie back into the 
mini mart while I ran into the 
store to get the deposit and my 
day-timer," Proctor said. "I was 
up to my waist in smoke, and the 
ceiling was on fire." 

Officials said the fire took less 

than an hour to put out. Twenty- 
five firefighters were on the scene 
for nearly six hours before 
declaring a cause. Damage 
ranged from more than $200,000 
for the futon store to more than 
$2,000 to $3,000 for Lucky Mac's 
Liquor Store and Mini Mart 
Convenience Grocery Store, 
which received smoke damage. 

Proctor said he planned to re- 
open by April 1, 2000. 

From 1995-99 seven fires were 
reported in Aggieville resulting 
in more than $1,007,900 worth of 
damage, Francis said.

For the first time, students 
could only place their votes 
online for Student Governing 
Association elections March 6-8. 

During the first day of the 
elections, problems arose when 
World Wide Web browsers did 
not support the online voting 
software. Older versions of 
Netscape Navigator and Internet 
Explorer could not provide the 
proper encryption to submit the 
data to K-State 
became the first university to use 
the software, offering more 
security and less chances of 
fraudulent votes than other 
voting software.

Cable channel 8 televised the 
election results March 8. Of the 
nine parties running for student 
body president, candidates Jake 
Worcester and Dana Pracht 
received 35.26 percent of the 
votes and Jesse McCurry and 
Kylo Heller received 15.92 
percent. The 3,543 votes was the 
highest turnout since 1976 and a 
26-percent increase from the 1999 
election. Because a candidate 
must receive at least 50% of the 
votes to win the election, there 
was a runoff election between the 
two parties March 13. 

Worcester and Pracht 
received 1,078 of the 1,863 votes 
cast, winning the election. The 
two took office in April. 


The Kansas Board of Regents approved a tuition 
increase of $3.20 per credit hour for K-State resident 
undergraduate students. 

About seven months earlier, June 24, the Regents 
had passed a $3.75-per-credit-hour increase. 

Scheduled for fall 2000, the two increases would 
produce more than $2 million. The funds would be 
used for technology and library needs. 

Included in the price hike was the renewal of a 
two-year-old $l-per-credit-hour technology fee. 
Aside from the two increases, there was also a $1- 
per-credit-hour fee to improve libraries that had 
already existed. 

Full-time resident undergraduate students were 
not the only ones affected. Full-time nonresident 
undergraduate students saw a hike of $9.25 a credit 
hour, while full-time resident graduate students 
paid an additional $4.55. 

The approval of the tuition increase helped K- 
State's revenue base grow from about $43 million 
to $45 million.

In between technological improvements and past 
awards, students struggled to achieve goals and gain 
recognition. • Project Orion provided students with a 
chance to earn extra funds and gain hands-on 
experience by designing Web pages for local groups 
and organizations. Though only an extracurricular 
program now, students hoped the project would 
eventually be worth college credit. • K-State's Honor 
Council enacted a new honor system with a goal to 
curb cheating behavior. The Honor Council expected 
students to enforce the non-cheating system upon 
themselves through implied responsibility displayed in 
classroom posters. Students were in between the choice 
of taking the code seriously and getting the letter grade 
the easy way. • The American Society of Agricultural 
Engineers offered students a chance to design a quarter- 
scale tractor model. Students strove to win awards like 
past ones and met the group's expectations for success. 
• University Gardens underwent further construction to 
allow horticulture and entomology students more hands- 
on experience and research. As the gardens grew, the 
departments introduced more student opportunities, 
leaving students between increased employment 
opportunities and a wider variety of class content. • 
Whether in class or at work, competitions and projects 
left students in between accomplishing goals of success 
and creating new ones.

K-State recently honored a former veterinary medicine 
professor by renaming the Veterinary Clinical Sciences 
Building to Jacob E. Mosier Hall. 

"It's a stupendous honor and so overwhelming," 
Mosier said. "I'm forever grateful to those who were 

Mosier worked in the College of Veterinary Medicine 
from 1945 to 1992, serving as the surgery and medicine 
department head in 1961 and the College of Veterinary 
Medicine director of development in 1985. He also became 
the college's scholarship campaign committee chairman last 

During the 46 years Mosier taught at K-State the classes 
changed over the years as the curriculum's focus changed, 
he said. In the 1940s, when Mosier began his teaching career, 
the curriculum focused on larger animals. As time passed, 
smaller, more specific areas of veterinary medicine 

Mosier specialized in dermatology, opthalmology and 

nutrition, and the treatment of horses and small animals. 
Mosier said he also helped develop the curriculum of 
pediatrics and geriatrics. 

Mosier's involvements and awards stretched beyond 
K-State's limits through national and international 

Mosier joined the World Veterinary Medical 
Association in the late 1970s, becoming the vice president 
shortly after. He remained there until he became president 
of the American Veterinary Medical Association in 1981. 
He accepted the Kansas Veterinarian of the Year award in 
1977 and received the Norden Distinguished Teaching Award 
in 1964. 

Provost James Coff man said Mosier helped further the 
curriculum's development in veterinary medicine. 

"He set the standard in veterinary medicine both at K- 
State and on a national level," Coffman said. "He influenced 
practicing veterinarians as well as veterinary medicine 
students." By Jennifer Stiles

Laser surgery 

After 15 years of wearing them, President 
Jon Wefald no longer needed his glasses. And 
he had one of his colleagues to thank for it. 

Wefald credited his improved vision to the 
laser in-situ keratomelisus, or LASIK procedure, 
which he underwent in March 1999. The 
founder of this process, Don Setser, taught 
chemistry at K-State. 

"I'm not unlike any other candidate (for the 
operation)," Wefald said. "Every two years I'd 
get a check up and another prescription. The 
lenses just kept getting thicker and thicker, so I 
just thought it would be a good idea to try it." 

After being given an anesthetic eye-drop, 
with the use of a computer, the surgeon began 
by creating and lifting a thin layer of tissue from 
the cornea. The surgeon then sculpted the 
corneal tissue to correct vision. Tissue 
replacement completed the operation. 

"This was initially done for the military," 
Setser said. "Myself and two other grad students 
did some lab work about 25 years ago. The 
interior of the laser is an electrical discharge of 
gases. So suggestions were made and it 
immediately showed to be a successful 
composition. It was inexpensive and reliable." 

Dr. John Doane, Wefald's surgeon, said the 
procedure, approved by the Food and Drug 
Administration only four years ago, broke 
barriers in laser technology. 

"He (Setser) and his grad students were the 
first to discover excimer laser technology," 
Doane said. "They discovered how to excite the 
molecules to give off energy. It was ground 
breaking to say the least. It is comparable with 
the discovery of the light bulb." 

The operation lasted slightly more than 30 
minutes. Wefald noticed positive results that 
same day. 

"My eyes were in turmoil," he said. "They 
felt kind of grainy for the first couple hours but 
at 8:30 or 9 that night I was reading the Kansas 
City Star with no glasses. The next morning I 
went in to shave and I thought 'this is unreal.' ' 

The operation carried a price tag of $2,150 
per eye, but both patient and surgeon felt it was 
well worth it. 

"It's stimulating on a daily basis," Doane 
said. "This is a wonderful profession that is an 
incredibly life-changing event. A patient will 
walk in with extremely poor vision and walk 
out with extremely well vision."

Famous British primatologist visits campus, brings 
stories from experience, educates children. 

Jane I 

Jane Goodall, primatologist and world- 
renowned authority on chimpanzee behavior, 
spread her message of environmental 
responsibility at Sunset Zoological Park and 
McCain Auditorium Oct. 22 and 23. 

Goodall's speeches concluded a five-day 
ChimpanZoo behavior research project 
conference at Sunset Zoo. The seven 
chimpanzees residing in the Sunset Zoo had 
recently made a habitat change to an indoor and 
outdoor living area. The behavioral changes 
resulting from the different living area attracted 
the attention of the ChimpanZoo National 

"We study chimp behaviors in captivity," 
Scott Shoemaker, zoo director, said. "She 
compares wild behaviors with captive ones." 

Goodall started the ChimpanZoo project, an 
international research program that studied 
chimpanzee behavior in zoos and other captive 
settings. Sunset Zoo volunteers had prepared for 
the conference for two years. 

"I was in Africa last summer, and I've 
always been interested in Jane Goodall and her 
work," Brian Keller, senior in microbiology, said. 
"I couldn't miss this opportunity to see her." 

The volunteers attended Goodall's speech 
at 5 p.m. Oct. 23 in McCain, contributing to the 

1,578 full seats. Goodall told of her love of 
animals and her work in Africa. 

"At 10, 1 wanted to go to Africa and live with 
animals," Goodall said. "I was 23 years old 
when I started. For three months, I was waking 
up in my dream. That's the magic. It's still going 
on today." 

A friend invited Goodall to Kenya in 1957 
and she worked as a waitress until she could 
afford the boat fare in 1960. She arrived in 
Tanzania and met Louis Leakey, anthropologist 
and paleontologist. Leakey asked Goodall to 
observe wild chimpanzees to learn about the 
evolutionary past of humans. Goodall had no 
training, but Leakey desired a fresh perspective 
for his research. 

"There were two obstacles," Goodall said. 
"First, who was going to give money for an 
untrained girl? I think a rich American did, but 
only for five or six months. Second, where the 
chimps were was owned by Britain and they 
wouldn't let a girl go into the forest by herself. 
They said I needed a companion, so my mother 
said she would go." 

During her first three months in Africa, she 
made a groundbreaking discovery: chimpan- 
zees used tools, previously thought to be a trait 
only humans possessed. The finding led to

each other. (Photo by Steven 

Jane Goodall, world renowned 
primatologist, came to Manhattan 
Oct. 23 as part of the Roots and 
Shoots program. Goodall's 
interest in animal behavior 
started when she was 4 and 
wondered how hens laid eggs. 
"Where is the hole big enough for 
the eggs to come out?" When no 
one answered she stayed four 
hours in a hen house to find out.

she walked away from looking at

additional funding by the National Geographic 
Society. Later, she learned chimps displayed nine 
tool-using behaviors. 

"It showed how like us chimps actually are," 
Goodall said. "They are closer to us than gorillas. 
It helped to blur the line between humans and 
the rest of the animal kingdom." 

Goodall also founded many research centers 
and educational programs, such as Roots and 
Shoots. With chapters in more than 50 countries, 
Roots and Shoots provided opportunities for 
students in preschool through college to 
experience hands-on conservation. 

"When young people are empowered, then 
there is nothing that can stop them," Goodall 

Manhattan's chapter of Roots and Shoots, 
active for about a year, participated in monthly 
activities, including neighborhood and zoo litter 

cleanups and making pine cone bird feeders. 

"One way that it (Roots and Shoots) benefits 
the zoo is it allows us to educate young people 
about the environment," Schanee Anderson, 
Sunset Zoo's curator of education, said. "They 
are the key to our future." 

The participants in Roots and Shoots met 
others with similar interests in conservation, 
which built a sense of community, Anderson 
said. The monthly projects involved about 50 
students from local elementary schools. 

About 800 children and teachers participated 
in learning activities at Goodall's presentation 
at Sunset Zoo. 

"It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to 
meet Jane Goodall," said Linda Mathews, fourth 
grade teacher at Lee Elementary School. "I was 
really surprised that so many of my kids knew 
immediately who Jane Goodall was."

Gives tuition 


The Office of Student Financial Aid, Adult 
Student Sen/ices provides expo for students. 

A solution for students' tuition bills next year could be found at 
the Show Me the Money financial aid and scholarship workshop 
Nov. 16. The workshop included an hour-long expo and presentation. 
Both gave information on how to solve students' tuition problems. 

"It was about getting scholarship and financial aid information 
out to the students," Nancy Bolsen, adult student services director, 
said. "Students need to know that they need to apply now for next 
year's aid." 

The expo allowed students to visit with K-State colleges that 
interested them and find out about scholarships. Gina Sylvester, arts 
and sciences assistant dean, represented the College of Arts and 
Sciences. Sylvester attended last year's expo but said more students 
attended this year and seemed more interested. 

"Because they switched the expo and the presentations around 
it gave me more of an opportunity to talk with the students," 
Sylvester said. "Freshmen primarily needed the most information. 
It is important that they have a sense of what is available." 

After last year's presentations, more than 300 students and area 
residents rushed to the expo, leaving little or no time for 
representatives to talk individually with students. The new 
workshop order enabled students to gather information and talk to 
different groups. 

"I liked the format," Jake Schuler, freshman in art, said. "Everyone 
was represented equally." 

Jack Taylor, student financial assistance assistant director and 
undergraduate admissions representative, also provided Internet 
addresses for scholarship searches. 

Students could search ' and 
for scholarship information, Taylor said. 

"The online support was very helpful," Schuler said. "It's quick 
and instant, and they e-mail you with what you matched up with." 

Taylor also warned students about financial aid and scholarship 
scams that took students' money to tell them information he would 
tell them for free. 

"If you want to pay $79 for someone to tell you to fill out a Free 
Application for Federal Student Aid," Taylor said, "then give me 
the money, and I will even help you fill out the form." 

Students who needed financial assistance tended to be afraid to 
come into the 104 Fairchild office, Taylor said. They come in and 
think they need to pack up and head home, but the financial aid 
office did what they could for the students to receive enough aid to 
stay in school, he said. 

"The students thought the office was one of the worst places to 
visit," Taylor said. "Most of the office got excited when a student 
came in for help."

Aquatic aerobic classes through 
LIFE program give students 
chance to teach. 

Making waves 

by Emily Cherry 

The Natatorium served as the classroom, and 
most of the teacher's pupils exceeded her 
own age by more than 30 years. But despite this 
unique learning atmosphere, students listened 
as Heather Demel, Joints in Motion instructor 
and sophomore in kinesiology, encouraged them 
in their daily workout. 

The class specifically targeted the arthritic 
community and represented one of three aquatic 
aerobics classes created by Lifestyle 
Improvement through Fitness Enhancement. 

"It's kind of weird telling older people what 
to do," Demel said. "I hope when I'm that age I 
can still be as active as they are." 

LIFE offered aquatic exercise classes Monday 
through Friday, with membership costs ranging 
$16-$80 depending on the number of classes 
taken per week. Joints in Motion, along with the 
higher-intensity morning and evening sessions 
Sunrise Splash and After Five Splash, provided 
activities for people with different ailments. 

"Aquatic exercises like this are becoming 
increasingly popular nationwide," Thomas 
Barstow, associate professor of kinesiology, said. 
"They are a good alternative for people with 
arthritis or people who have had recent surgery 
or who are overweight." 

Barstow said water's natural resistance 
allowed people to move as quickly or as slowly 
as they wanted to vary the exercise's intensity. 

Tom Gray, physics professor, said enrolling 

in the program at his doctor's request helped 
decrease the pain of his arthritis and prepared 
him for his upcoming knee replacement surgery. 

"At first doing exercises hurt, but it doesn't 
anymore," Gray said. "Now when I get out of 
the pool my knees and legs feel better for the 
rest of the day." 

Barstow said the program had positive 
academic aspects. 

"I strongly recommend working with LIFE 
to kinesiology majors," Barstow said. "It 
provides practical experience that duplicates 
what many will find in the real world." 

Although the kinesiology department ran 
the program, the chance to teach LIFE aquatics 
classes did not limit which majors could apply 

"All students have to do to teach a LIFE class 
is contact me and instruct the class for a while 
under supervision," Lorelle Hackbart, LIFE 
Aquatics coordinator and kinesiology graduate 
student, said. "If they show leadership qualities 
and social skills, we welcome them to come and 

Sara Williamson, Sunrise Splash instructor 
and senior in secondary education, said the 
ability to teach a LIFE class lent itself well to her 

"I know this is a really good experience for 
me because I want to be a teacher," Williamson 
said. "It's refreshing and it helps me improve 
my person-to-person skills." 



Learning the life, culture of Senegalese people, 
professor brings knowledge back to campus. 

La Barbara 

When most students heard Africa, griot, 
teacher and research they had no idea how these 
words related, unless they were students of La 
Barbara Wigfall, associate professor in the De- 
partment of Landscape Architecture, Regional 
Planning and Environmental Design. 

Griots, African women storytellers, traveled 
to various wedding receptions and put on a 
story-telling contest, Wigfall said. The women 
passed a torch around while telling stories. 
Wedding guests clapped for their favorite griot, 
and winners received money. 

"You dare not tell them (the griots) they can't 
come, they're not invited," Wigfall said, "be- 
cause they're going to show up anyway." 

Griots also performed a seductive dance 
where they pulled up their skirts and revealed 
lacy lingerie. In essence, they taught women 
how to act on their wedding nights, Wigfall said. 

Wigfall and 14 other instructors from vari- 
ous colleges and universities around the Kan- 
sas City area spent five weeks researching Dakar 
and St. Louis, Senegal in Africa. The trip allowed 
for an intensive study of Senegalese life and 
culture. American scholars gained a broader 
understanding and greater appreciation of the 
area and its people. Wigfall said she learned 
about buildings, houses and literature issues and 
how they affected the relationship between 
Senegal and the United States. 

"I treasure those experiences where I can 
learn and grow both as an individual and as a 
teacher," Renee Michael, psychology professor 
at Rockhurst College, said. "As always, it is hard 
work to organize a large amount of information 
in a relatively short period of time but the infor- 
mation we learned in Senegal was extremely 

valuable and worth the effort." 

The Fulbright-Hays Group sponsored the 
$56,000 expedition from July 11 to Aug. 21. 

Designed to collect all available information 
on natives' lives, 15 teachers specializing in dif- 
ferent areas composed the team. 

The team composed a book and compact 
disc, made available nationally. In addition, each 
individual developed a program to use the spe- 
cific information gained on the trip for projects 
on their own campuses. 

"Americans in general tend to be very ethno- 
centric and really need to have their horizons 
expanded," said Linda Waxse, addiction coun- 
selor at Kansas City Kansas Community Col- 
lege. "They need to become familiar with what 
are the similarities as well as differences between 
us and another country. It is also important to 
recognize how very, very fortunate we are to 
live in such an affluent country." 

Wigfall hoped to use the knowledge she 
gained to start a literature class. Class readings 
would describe buildimgs or houses in order to 
unite students with different majors. 

"It (the class) would more be pitched to ar- 
chitecture students, English students, so they 
come together and one learns about the other's 
area," Wigfall said. 

The class would deal with the house as a 
character in literature by reading novels describ- 
ing houses and then watching movies based on 
these novels to see how the houses were inter- 
preted, Wigfall said. 

"So we can do the same thing with Senaglese 
authors and history, and look at the house as a 
meaningful part of the people and culture," 
Wigfall said.

The aviation program at the Salina Campus 
climbed into the top five technology and 
aviation colleges in the United States with the 
new Cessna Citation jet. 

The Citation gave students an option to gain 
corporate jet experience. The plane's 10-year 
lease cost $20,000 per month. Users paid for 
operation costs by mile. 

"Students need the corporate world 
experience that they can get with the new 
Citation," said Roger Steinbrock, Salina campus 
public relations and alumni coordinator. "This 
is something that we could not have provided 

Students learned about the jet's systems, 
operation and maintenance through hands-on 
training and lecture. 

The students calculated fuel amounts, 
departure and arrival times, flight time, weather 
predictions, passenger's ground travel 
arrangements and navigation routes. Once they 
arrived at their destination, the students 
determined the return trip time, cleaned the jet 
and reloaded refreshments in preparation for 

"It's a flying laboratory," said Dennis 
Kuhlman, College of Technology and Aviation 
dean. "It's what the corporate world is all 

K-State limited the jet's use to the university. 
Anyone on either campus could use the jet, as 
long as arrangements went through President 
Jon Wefald's office, Steinbrock said. 

"The university offers us places to go and 

we provide a flight instructor and a student who 
will co-pilot," Kuhlman said. "Students get to 
learn teamwork, get to learn the structure of the 
corporate world." 

Due to the athletic department's away 
games, sports teams used the jet more than any 
other group on campus. 

"We have worked a lot with the athletic 
department, in flying the coaches around and 
bringing in some of the new recruits," Ryan 
Johnson, flight instructor, said. "They have given 
us places to fly all over the United States, which 
has provided good experience with this plane." 

Though the jet gave flight students 
experience, Steinbrock stressed the importance 
of a solid foundation for the program. 

"The structure that we have, and the way 
we go about things also makes the difference," 
Steinbrock said. 

Part of this structure included the uniforms 
that the flight instructors made their students 
wear when they flew to make it more like the 
real world, Johnson said. 

"Uniforms are required so students get 
accustomed to being professional, and what they 
will wear in the corporate world," Johnson said. 
"The students are also only allowed to wear a 
certain color uniform and so are the instructors." 

Students started flying in January 2000. 

"After ground school the students will be 
able to start flying right seat on the plane, with 
an instructor," Johnson said. "This will start 
giving the students some experience they 
couldn't get before."

The National Council on Economic Education awarded K-State's Center for Economic 
Education a five-year affiliation for its work with local high schools: To gain affiliation, 
Dorothy Soldan, director for K-State's center of economic education^ submitted the economic 
education plans from the past five years to the NCEE, along with the next five years' plan. 

"I am very pleased that we got this affiliation," Soldan said. "Economics is core to 
understanding how our world works." 

The affiliation recognized the center's impact on economic literacy in the classroom. 
Economic reasoning, problem-solving and decision-making skills strengthened 
opportunities for achievement and satisfaction in personal, community arid employment 
roles, Soldan said. 

KSUCEE used the Stock Market game and LifeSmarts to teach high school students. 
Each year, 350 to 400 schools participated in the Stock Market garhe, Soldan said. Edward 
Chandler, economics and U.S. History teacher at Manhattan High School West Campus, 
said he used the ten-week course to give students the opportunity to have a stock market 
experience at an early age. 

The other program, LifeSmarts, offered an Internet quiz bowl. The Web site,, taught students essentials needed to survive in the marketplace, Soldan 
said. Students could compete on state or natiorial levels via the Internet. By Jennifer Bieber

Faculty members challenge 
note-taking Web sites while 
students cash in on lectures. 


by Geoff Peggs 

1964. University of California at Los Angeles. 
Class Notes, a company that published lecture 
notes in books, paid Karen Allen to attend 
Assistant Professor B. J. Williams' anthropology 
lecture. The court ruling of Williams vs. Weisser 
(of Class Notes) in 1969 gave $1,000 in damages 
and $500 in punitive damages to Williams for 
common-law copyright infringement. 

1999. K-State. E-commerce Web sites like and emerged on 
campus, offering free lecture notes on the 
Internet to students while challenging copyright 
laws. Online note resources paid students $7 per 
lecture for 30 different lecture classes. 

"It's a pretty new topic, and the legal 
definitions are kind of vague at this moment," 
said Beau Blackford, sophomore in business 
administration and campus manager. 
"There are specific teachers who have entire 
notes copyrighted within (Microsoft) 
PowerPoint, and I make it a note not to hire from 
classes like this." 

Blackford said he checked each set of notes 
for quality before posting them. 

Some professors did not want their notes 
published online without consent. Maria 
Paukastelis, chemistry instructor, said she told 
her class at the semester's beginning not to post 

her lecture notes on the Internet. 

"I'm angry because they are taking what 
belongs to me and making it available for free," 
she said. "It's my intellectual property" 

Dick Seaton, university attorney, said issues 
came up when professors complained about 
their lectures being posted without consent. 

"Although they're paid for giving the lecture, 
by university policy, they retain the rights in the 
lecture," he said. "And I don't think it's right 
for somebody else to be making money off the 
intellectual property of somebody else." 

Seaton said copyright laws were unclear in 
the area of posting lecture notes on the Internet, 
as Williams vs. Weisser was the only recorded 
case law regarding it. He also said in 1969 the 
the court said copyright belonged to the faculty 
member, and not the university. 

Despite the uncertainty about copyright 
infringement, Blackford compared Versity's 
notetakers to newspaper reporters. 

"The reporters go out and take information 
from what they see, what they hear, and they 
write their articles and get paid to do so," he 
said. "And this isn't copyright infringement. Just 
as it isn't copyright infringement when we take 
our own interpretation of a lecture, which is 
what our notes are: interpretations."

Slaughtering gives animal science and industry 
students practical experience for select-meat sales. 

Where's f *\ 



Monday and Wednesday nights throughout 
the semester, cattle shipments arrived at Weber 
Hall Meat Lab. After about 12 hours, cows 
originally wrapped in hide, were wrapped in 
cellophane and waited to be purchased by 
students, staff, faculty and the general public. 

"The meat is excellent, and the service is 
really good and helpful," Janice Moyer, meat lab 
patron, said. "I just wish they could possibly 
extend their hours more." 

The sale, open to the public Wednesdays from 
3-6 p.m. and Fridays from 12-6 p.m., sold about 
300 - 400 pounds of meat per sale, John Wolf, 
meat lab manager, said. 

When a large number of cattle, pigs or sheep 
came through to be slaughtered, the lab needed 
12 students to run the line. Conflicting schedules 
usually meant six or seven students could work, 
lengthening the process, Joe Abeldt, senior in 
animal science and industry, said. Abeldt, one 
of 16 students who worked for the meat lab, said 
he became involved with the lab to see the other 
side of the cattle industry. 

"I didn't know the retail side of things," he 
said. "I wanted to learn how to market the cuts." 

Schedule conflicts allowed Karee Shirley, 
senior in horticulture, to work Wednesdays and 
Fridays during the sale, when the hours fit easily 
into her schedule. 

"I enjoyed working with the public and those 
who prepared the meat in the lab," Shirley said. 
"I learned a lot about the appearance of the 
product in the sale coolers." 

Jason Sunderland, senior in park resource 
management, said he heard about the lab from 
a friend and decided to work there to gain 
knowledge about slaughtering animals. He 
participated in the meat judging team at Barton 
County Community College, a friend referred 
him to the meat lab. 

"To slaughter eight cattle, it only takes an 
hour," Sunderland, said. "The cattle arrived the 
night before or that morning for slaughtering." 

After students brought the cow into the room 
for the slaughtering process, they executed the 
first three stages in one spot. One person cut 
off the head and then an inspector checked the 
nodes for the animal's health. The next two 
people exsanguinated, or drained the cow of 
blood. They cut the animal three times across 
the neck and hung it by its hind legs to allow 
the blood to drain into a tub below the carcass. 
After four to five minutes, they cut open the 
belly and eviscerated, or gutted the animal. 
Students then stripped the hide off the cow and 
cut its breastplate, splitting the cow in half. 
Finally, they weighed, cleaned and checked the 
cow for any dirt or remaining hair particles. An

inspector then checked each half of the cow 
before students moved it into the coolers. 

"Seventy percent of the cow had usable 
meat," Wolf said. "The other 30 percent was 
waste materials, bones, fat and organs." 

The lab provided testing samples for the food 
safety department, research carcasses for the 
biochemistry, biology and veterinary 
departments, and meat for residence hall dining 
centers and the K-State Student Union catering 

Money brought in from the meat sale funded 
the lab's expenses, helped recuperate some 
teaching costs and covered some research 
projects' costs, Wolf said. 

Students used the lab to gain experience for 
their field of study, or to gain extra knowledge 
in a field unrelated to their major. 

"It's a good learning experience," Sunderland 
said. "I think that employers like looking at a 
different variety of skills." 

Production and development, food services 
and teaching benefited from the meat lab, Wolf 
said. For students, the lab provided hands-on 
experience and knowledge not available in the 
meat science or livestock and meat evaluation 
classes, he said. 

"They are getting two educations while they 
are here," Wolf said. "One they pay for, and the 
other they are getting paid for."

Through hands

Without funds, sign language class offers beginning course 
but lack of advancement frustrates students, faculty. 

Mimicking each other, 27 women crammed 
into Leasure 112 to learn a language for- 
eign to most. 

Sign language, though a common commu- 
nication form, could not be found in the mod- 
ern languages department. Natalie Smith, edu- 
cation and personal development assistant, 
taught Manual Communications I, the only sign 
language class offered on campus. 

"If they had more funds," Smith said, "they 
(the department) would be able to hire some- 
one else and teach more sections of the course." 

Smith said she might teach the second level 
in 2001, but Teresa Gentry, senior in elementary 
education, said it would not be soon enough. 

"I'm at the point where I'm over halfway 
through it (the class), and the semester is quickly 
coming to an end," Gentry said. "I feel like I'm 
left wanting to know more." 

With only one sign language level offered, 
some students said they needed to learn more 

Communicating through actions, Natalie 
Smith, education and personal development assistant,

skills in order to feel confident in the language. 

"I don't think that's right," said Kate 
Wooldridge, senior in communication sciences 
and disorders. "We are almost at the end of the 
semester, and all we're learning is vocabulary. 
There is a lot more to the language." 

Mostly speech pathology or special educa- 
tion majors, students said the class would be 
helpful in their careers. The class gave students 
practical experience, Smith said, signing to each 
other and taking fieldtrips, including one to the 
Kansas State School for the Deaf in Olathe, Kan. 

Since the class had high demand, students 
usually could not enroll in it until their junior 
or senior year, Bob Garcia, family studies and 
human services instructor, said. However, 
Garcia said, all students in the Department of 
Communication Sciences and Disorders had an 
opportunity to take the class. 

Disabled Student Services allowed Smith to 
teach the Manual Communications I class, pro- 
viding and paying for the instructor. 

"I was allowed to teach the class mostly be- 
cause it is beneficial for me to make sure I'm 
keeping up on my sign language," Smith said, 
"and there was no one else qualified to teach 
the class."

Some professors make themselves known for their 
style. This one is known mostly by his feet. 


Just as the bell rang, the professor stepped 
into the crowded lecture hall. Barefoot and 
wearing a faded red shirt and worn out jeans, 
he strolled to the front of the room. The class 
quieted while he taught, pacing the length of 
the chalkboard and leaving footprints in the 
chalk dust on the floor. 

Dave Auckly, assistant mathematics 
professor, first kicked his shoes off while 
teaching at Arizona State University when his 
sandals sidetracked him during his lecture. But 
the reaction he received ended up being 
completely distracting. After teaching at the 
University of Michigan, the University of Texas 
and the University of California at Berkeley, he 
said he became widely known for his distaste 
of shoes. 

"It makes me more approachable and my 
class more relaxed," Auckly said. "And I think 
it makes my job easier." 

Teaching barefoot, Auckly said, made 
communicating with his students easier because 
he thought he seemed less intimidating. He said 
students felt more comfortable speaking to him 
and asking questions. 

Lev Kapitanski, math professor, said the 
freedom to dress comfortably without worrying 
about appearances offered an advantage to 
working for the math department. 

"I remember my parents nagging me over 
having long hair and wearing bell-bottoms," 
Kapitanski said. "Did it matter? And recently, a 
friend of mine went to work for Enterprise Rent- 
A-Car and was told to shave his beard off. Can 
you imagine President (Jon) Wefald or Provost 
(James) Coffman barefooted? It's great to be a 

The sight of a barefooted calculus professor 
came as a shock to Eric Wittman, freshman in 

architectural engineering. But he agreed Auckly 
created a relaxed learning environment for class. 

"I'm from a really small town, so my first 
thought was he's either crazy or so smart he's 
crazy," Wittman said. "At first I thought it was 
just a joke, but then I got used to it." 

While Auckly felt more comfortable lecturing 
barefoot, he said he had nothing personal 
against shoes. When he went to public places, 
he wore the appropriate foot attire. 

Steve Galitzer, division of public safety 
director, said no policies prohibited students or 
faculty from going shoeless inside campus 
buildings with the exception of laboratories and 
food service areas. He also said if students or 
faculty went barefoot, they were responsible for 
their decision. 

Auckly's lack of shoes attracted attention 
from his colleagues at each university he taught, 
he said. As a joke and stress reliever, Jean Marie 
Linhart, graduate student at the University of 
Texas, filled Auckly's office with shoes from co- 
workers and friends during April 1993 master's 
and doctoral theses due dates. 

"I had always aspired to pulling a truly clever 
practical joke, and Dave's shoelessness while 
strolling around the math building just inspired 
my imagination," Linhart said. "We had ladies' 
shoes, men's shoes, baby shoes, formal shoes, 
pink satin prom shoes, high-heeled shoes, 
grungy shoes, all kinds of shoes." 

After Linhart's joke, Auckly decided to 
donate the shoes to Jewish Family Charities in 
Austin, Texas. 

Several students claimed Auckly never wore 
shoes. Auckly's wife, Andrea, said Auckly rarely 
wore them even at home. 

"Every Christmas my mom buys him shoes," 
she said. "He has boxes of unworn shoes."

During his Analytical Geometry and 
Calculus lecture, Auckly works 
through an example on the 
chalkboard. Auckly said that 
whenever he actually did wear 
shoes, his co-workers gave him a 
hard time. (Photo by Steven

Orion teaches students about Web site 
design, provides groups with homepages. 

With the prevalence of the Internet, students discovered the 
importance of learning Web design skills through Project Orion. 

Tom Gould, Orion director and assistant journalism professor, 
started the Orion team in fall 1998. The project taught students how 
to build Web sites from the ground up. 

Gould said many different skills went into creating a successful 
Web site such as organization, management and the ability to make 
sites user-friendly, but talented writing was the most important skill. 

"It's all about writing," Gould said. "It's all being creative. Good 
writing is all that matters, and the same thing applies visually." 

At its beginning, Orion employed three people after Gould put 
up signs advertising the project. By October, five members worked 
on the team, and as the team continued to grow, Gould said he 
expected to have at least 10 or 11 people involved by spring semester. 

Orion team members created and maintained Web sites for 
organizations like the Huck Boyd National Center for Community 
Media, the Juvenile Justice program for Kansas, the Kansas Board of 
Regents and McCain Auditorium. They also worked on the 
International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and Interbev 
Web sites. 

Tom Jackson, McCain Auditorium's assistant director, said 
Project Orion helped the auditorium maintain and update its Web 
site. Jackson said Orion's work met the needs of McCain's site. 

"Project Orion has been excellent to work with because of what 
we have here at McCain," Jackson said. "They've been able to make 
the (schedule) changes quickly." 

Students who worked for Orion received $9.80 per hour. The 
money used to pay these students and to fund the team came from 
organizations that financially supported Orion to set up and maintain 
their Web sites. The organizations funded Project Orion with both 
machines and money to pay students. 

"It's not an effort to pay students," Gould said. "It's an effort to 
train them to work in a real-life environment." 

Contracts required team members to work 10 hours per week, 
Gould said. Some projects required extra time if students did not 
plan properly, he said. However, many students spent extra time in 
the lab experimenting with the equipment. 

Orion emphasized trying new things and sharing new 
experiences that the members would carry with them through their 
lives and careers, said Wesley Blue, Orion's assistant director and 
senior in management. "It (designing Web sites) is an applicable job 
skill," Blue said. "The Internet is not going away any time soon."

Quarter-scale tractor team 
improves tractor elements to win 
awards, national competitions. 

Tractor technicians 

by Tanner Ehmke 

The Powercat Pullers tractor team knew how 
to pull its own weight. The 20 American 
Society of Engineers tractor team members, with 
the help of biological and agricultural 
engineering classes, won the 1999 first-place 
national trophy in quarter-scale tractor design 
and pull competition, improving from 1998's 
eighth-place finish. 

Thirty-four tractors from 30 universities 
nationwide and Canada entered the May 21-23 
competition last year for the tractor pull in East 
Moline, 111. The competition also included a 
written design report and team presentation. 

The team brought home seven trophies, 
including first in overall pulling competition, 
first in team presentation and first in overall 
competition. They defeated the returning 1998 
champion, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 
and received $500, which helped cover some of 
the expenses for building the tractor. 

"We got our names out into the industry," 
said Andy Grollmes, senior in biological and 
agricultural engineering. "Our resumes were all 
put into a book at the competition, which goes 
to the sponsors. There's also a lot of recognition 
for the schools and the department." 

Grollmes, tractor team president and design- 
team manager, helped the four-member design 
team improve the tractor's safety, 
manufacturability and serviceability 

In about eight months, the group modified 

the power transmission and weight distribution 
to turn the tractor into a champion. 

"It's fun, overall," said Brian Olander, senior 
in biological and agricultural engineering. "But, 
it can get really time consuming." 

Olander, design team member, said the six 
weeks before the competition were very 
stressful, which helped them learn how to work 
as a team. 

"We really pulled together as a team," 
Olander said. 

Behind the scenes, the team spent a lot of 
time in class. Design, statics, dynamics and 
mechanics of materials classes all factored into 
the champion quarter-scale tractor design and 
production, Grollmes said. Team members could 
earn two college credit hours for tractor team 

With the knowledge and skills they learned 
from the curriculum, they improved the tractor's 
efficiency by cutting and distributing the weight 
differently and altering the transmission, 
Grollmes said. 

Being a member gave the team the 
opportunity to become more aquainted with 
their major, the department, upperclassmen and 
faculty, said John Kattenberg, team secretary and 
sophomore in biological and agricultural 

"We work really hard in and out of class," 
Kattenberg said. "We all work together."

The Illumination Engineering Society of North 
America recognized one person each year as their Mickey 
A. Woods Outstanding Besal Scholar. Russell Murdock, 
graduate student in architectural engineering, received the 
award Aug. 9. 

"This award provides me with a lot of pride," Murdock 
said. "I'm not one who looks for praise, but it was nice to 
be recognized for the work I have been doing for six years." 

After receiving his second $2,000 Besal Scholarship in 
April 1999, Murdock applied for the award. Only those 
who received a Besal Scholarship could apply for the 

Woods Award. 

Students from across the country applied, but only 
one received the Woods Award. The society recognized 
a person who contributed to the lighting industry. 

"He is currently the president of IES, he attends the 
IES annual conferences and has had excellent academic 
success every year he has been here," said Clarence 
Waters, former K-State adviser for the Illumination 
Engineering Society. "He has the potential to make a 
significant impact in the lighting industry." By Rachel

A 30-gallon trash barrel's worth of 
multicolored LEGOs covered the second floor 
of Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art. More 
than 130 local elementary school children and 
their parents split into two teams and scrambled 
to find the right pieces to add to the group's 
structures at the LEGO Family Architecture 
Workshop Nov. 11. 

"The theme of the workshop is 'Big,' " said 
Elizabeth Smith, treasurer for the American 
Institute of Architecture Students and junior in 
architecture, to the workshop's participants. 
"We want you guys to work together to make 
something big." 

K-State's AIAS chapter sponsored the fifth- 
annual free workshop. Though usually 
conducted in the spring in Seaton Hall, the 
workshop added a new dimension to the art 
museum's exhibit "The Sense of the City: Louis 
I. Kahn's Design for an Office Building in Kansas 
City, 1966-1973." 

"When we do programs at the museum, it 
needs to be related to the exhibit," said Kathrine 
Walker Schlageck, education and public 
programs coordinator at the museum. "When 
we do our workshops, we normally have 
students run them." 

The workshop resulted in the largest 
turnout the museum had seen for the past year, 
Schlageck said. Children of all ages, ranging 
from newborn infants to 12-year-olds, attended 
the event. 

"It's grown a lot this year," Jennifer Kerl, 
junior in architecture, said. "It used to be just

Dave play with LEGOs at the workshop Nov.

one elementary school class, and this year they 
opened it up to the whole community." 

Michelle Duggan, parent of two boys who 
attended the workshop and Manhattan resident, 
said she heard about the workshop through a 
newsletter from Frank Bergman School. She said 
the event provided better entertainment for her 
kids than television. 

"First of all, all boys like LEGOs," Duggan 
said. "It sounded like a fun, creative way to 
spend the evening. I'm always looking for good 
entertainment for the kids and this is wonderful 
because it's hands-on and there's great 

The children worked with their parents and 
other children to build objects out of LEGOs. 
Throughout the hour-long workshop, 
participants combined their individual objects 
to make two larger structures. 

"I think it's pretty neat," Andrew Duggan, 
10, said. "I knew lots of my friends were going 
to come." 

Smith said the workshop provided an 
opportunity for local children to participate in 
a college student mentor program, while 
offering them a chance to learn basic architectual 
design concepts. 

"I would like to try to put some of the 
projects on display, perhaps in the (K-State 
Student) Union, so that kids can show their 
projects to their family," Smith said. "I think that 
many of them get frustrated that they spend a 
lot of time building, but then they have to 
destroy it." 



The new honor system enacted on campus 
expected faculty and undergraduate 
students to consciously monitor cheating 
behavior in the classroom. The Honor Council 
encouraged both students and faculty to 
confront cheating behavior, either through a 
conversation with the suspected cheater or by 
reporting the person's behavior to the council 
for a follow-up investigation. A poster campaign 
began in August, stating "Honesty is always the 
best policy" from George Washington's farewell 
address in 1796, to serve as a policy reminder 
for students. (Photo illustration by Steven

new system 




th« I 




Helps promote 


Honor Council, administration challenges students, faculty to 
discourage acts of cheating through implied responsibility. 

Students found a new addition in their 
classrooms and syllabi. Officials implemented 
the honor system, in the works for nearly six 
years, throughout campus. 

The Honor Council, Faculty Senate, Student 
Senate and administration developed and 
unanimously approved the new system. 
Designed for undergraduate students, it caused 
both students and faculty to share the 
responsibility for classroom integrity. 

The honor system included a pledge for 
course work and exams stating: "On my honor, 
as a student, I have neither given nor received 
unauthorized aid on this academic work." 

"I would say the important thing to do if you 
have reason to suspect that someone is cheating 
is to do something," said Phil Anderson, honor 
system director and speech communications, 
theatre and dance instructor. 

If a student witnessed suspicious activity, 
Anderson said to inform the professor without 
revealing names or simply approach the student 
to let them know someone noticed the behavior. 

When the Honor Council received an 
academic dishonesty case, council members 
served as investigators and advisers to the 
student in question. If the case proceeded, 
hearing panels, consisting of three students and 
two faculty members, listened to the case and 

determined the verdict. The panels differed from 
the past when the process involved only faculty 
and administration. 

If found guilty, the alleged violator received 
an XF on their transcript, meaning the student 
not only failed the course, but also cheated. After 
a series of integrity workshops, the X could be 
removed, but the F would remain. 

Many students noticed the new policy, but 
Kori Dunaway, junior in marketing and 
international business and Honor Council 
member, said average students hadn't noticed. 

"Not everyone knows about it," Dunaway 
said. "It's just going to take time." 

Despite this, council members kept busy 
preparing workshops for possible honor pledge 
violators and publicizing the honor system. 

"The Honor Council will constantly be 
busy," said Michael Beachler, senior in 
economics and Honor Council member. "It has 
to make its presence known because the second 
people think we're ineffective is when the Honor 
Council can no longer fully do its job." 

Sara Harvey, senior in history, said morals 
learned as a child deterred her from cheating. 

"I think if people are going to cheat, they'll 
find a way," Harvey said. "If people are going 
to be dishonest, there's not a whole lot you can 
do about it."

BESITOS recruits bilingual 
students to be ESL instructors 
through scholarships. 

I Teaching opportunity 

by Jennifer Kehler 

The Kansas Board of Education provided 14 
education majors with paid tuition, books 
and living expenses, in exchange for a pledge 
to teach in Kansas for two years. 

Niza DiCarlo, Bilingual Education Students 
Interacting To Obtain Success program 
coordinator, said the program provided 
undergraduate students the opportunity to 
further their education, while preparing them 
to meet the diverse needs of primary and 
secondary students in Kansas. 

"The purpose of BESITOS," DiCarlo said, "is 
to increase the number of bilingual and ESL- 
endorsed teachers in Kansas areas where they 
were needed most, areas with the highest 
number of students who are learning English." 

A $l.l-million grant funded by Title VII 
made the scholarship and mentoring program 
possible. Selected students received four years 
of tuition, $150 a semester for books and $150 
for monthly living expenses. In return, students 
agreed to teach in Kansas for two years and to 
become English as a Second Language endorsed. 
This required a special curriculum that trained 
educators to work with culturally and 
linguistically diverse students learning English. 

"The goal is to give students who would not 
have the opportunity to go to college to become 
teachers, due to financial reasons, a chance to 

fulfill their dream," DiCarlo said. 

Manivanh Sivilaisane, freshman in 
elementary education and first-generation 
college student, said BESITOS recruited her and 
gave her financial support. 

"I maybe would have been able to take a few 
hours at a community college," Sivilaisane said. 
"But I would have never become a full-time 
student, especially at a university." 

Program applicants showed financial need, 
a desire to teach in Kansas and bilingual skills 
upon graduation. They also had to have a 2.7 
grade point average in high school or a 3.0 GPA 
at a community college. Students from the areas 
of Kansas where the number of ESL teachers did 
not meet the students' needs had preference. 

Students were required to volunteer as 
needed in local schools with students learning 
English, and maintain a minimum 2.7 GPA. 
Students also met with DiCarlo to address issues 
faced in classrooms and on campus. 

Sivilaisane found support in these sessions, 
because the group helped ease the transition into 
college. She said the students she worked with 
served as a family away from home. 

"If there are any problems or questions that 
I have," Sivilaisane said, "I can bring them up 
and other members of the group will help me 
work through them."

Professor conducts studies of children s brains to 
determine violent television s influence on behavior 


Serving as the interim associate vice provost 
for research and a Department of Family Stud- 
ies and Human Services professor would keep 
anybody busy. But for John Murray, those two 
roles were only his day job. 

Since 1969, Murray has researched 
television's impact, particularly TV violence, on 
children. In 1996, he began studying the effects 
of TV violence on children's brain activity. 

The researchers invited boys and girls with- 
out emotional or behavioral problems, ages 
eight to 13, to watch television while lying in a 
magnetic resonance imaging unit. They were 
shown violent clips, non-violent clips and a con- 
trol measurement clip. The researchers traced 
and mapped out the children's brain activity, 
and colors showed the degree of stimulation. 

The child's brain processed the stimulation 
as a violent event to file away in their long-term 
memory where it could be easily retrieved if 
emotionally charged, Murray said. 

"That is an example of what everyone wor- 
ries about with TV violence," he said. "It is emo- 
tionally arousing, and the kids like to watch it. 
They learn the behavior, and they remember it. 
Later on, if need be, they can recall the event 
and imitate the event. We think we have found 
the first neurophysiological evidence for that." 

Three consistent areas of the brain seemed 
to be activated when the children watched vio- 
lence, Murray said. The amygadala, on the right 
side of the brain, sensed danger first because it 
controlled the fight or flight chemical. 

The second area of the brain, the pre-frontal 
cortex or pre-motor area, dealt with planning, 
organization and forethought, Murray said. 

"What we think it does is recognize the fight 
as essentially threatening and it (the pre-frontal 
cortex) fires up the fight or flight area of the 
amygadala and also fires up a motor planning 
area that may be planning the movements," 
Murray said. "The children are not moving in 

the MRI, but they are thinking about the move- 
ments or what it would take to coordinate the 

The third part was in the back of the brain in 
front of the cerebellum. This held emotionally 
charged, highly active memories for easy re- 
trieval of long-term memory, Murray said. 

By fall 2000, Murray said he would like to 
start the second part of the research. 

"The next step we want to look at are kids 
who actually do have some behavioral prob- 
lems, who have either been violent themselves 
or youngsters who have experienced violence 
directly as a victim or indirectly by living in a 
violent home," he said. "The hypothesis is that 
they will be hyper-aroused. They will be more 
aroused by witnessing violence because they 
have lived through it. Or it may be some en- 
tirely different pattern." 

Tom Grimes, associate professor of journal- 
ism and mass communications, and Lori Bergen, 
assistant professor of journalism and mass com- 
munications, also researched the correlation 
between violence and television. 

"The hypothesis was that violent television 
only affects people pre-dispositioned to be af- 
fected psychologically," Grimes said. 

Grimes and Bergen disagreed with Murray 
because they believed violent television affected 
only abnormal people to do abnormal things, 
Grimes said. 

Despite the disagreement with Murray, the 
research results were important because the ef- 
fects of television violence were important to the 
public, Joel Benson, graduate in journalism and 
mass communications, said. 

"I think it's important because television is 
changing so quickly and people want to know 
the effects it has on their children," Benson said. 
"There's a variety of television, and people want 
to nail down what kind of television is having 
the worst affect."

Internet2 class offers chance to

Window to the future 

by Lori Wilson 

Twice a week, 15 K-State students' ideas and 
thoughts traveled across the country into other 
classrooms. Internet2 allowed plant pathology 
students from K-State, Oregon State University 
and the University of Nebraska to interact daily 
in the same class. 

In molecular plant-microbe interactions, a 
graduate-level class, one professor from the three 
universities lectured, and then students from all 
three classes discussed related published research 

"It enriches the whole environment," Jan 
Leach, plant pathology professor, said. "It gives 
the students the advantage of three professors 
instead of one." 

Leach taught with Nebraska's Marty 
Dickman and Oregon State's Tom Wolpert. 

A decade ago, Beth Unger, vice provost for 
academic service and instruction, proposed 
linking universities to many professors. Leach 
jumped at the chance. Her bi-annual class 
changed every year to keep up with new research, 
so the idea seemed appropriate. 

"It's an evolving thing," Leach said. "We 
don't teach any of the same things two years in a 

When Internet2 began in late 1998, K-State 
joined other universities on Internet2. Similar to

the regular Internet, Internet2 had a wider 
bandwidth, allowing large amounts of 
information to be transferred. 

The new technology, funded by the 
university, cost K-State more than $30,000. 

"It's like any brand new technology," Mel 
Chastain, Dole Center director, said. 
"Constraining us is cost and development, but 
if you don't spend once, you'll never know." 

The classroom, equipped with six television 
screens in the front and back, showed the 
different classes to the professor and the students. 
Because of Internet2's speed, audio and video 
arrived in "real world" time, Leach said, allowing 
students to talk as if in person. However, 
speaking in front of three classes made some 
students uncomfortable. 

"At first, I was kind of scared," Moha Ferrahi, 
graduate student in genetics, said. "When you 
start the class, it's intimidating and you ask 
yourself, 'Can I survive this class with three 
professors and Internet2?' but it turned out to 
be a nice experience." 

The class began as an experiment, but 
positive results, like improved technology and 
participation, assured its existence in 2001. 

"I think it's great," Leach said. "I really think 
it's the future of teaching."

A pair of K-State alumni contributed $135,000 to the KSU 
Foundation for two scholarships, 

Harold and Mary Siegele named the Merle R. Siegele Memorial 
Scholarship after Harold's brother, who graduated in mechanical 
engineering from K-State in 1950. Merle Siegele participated in the 
Methodist Men's Club and the Wesley Foundation. 

The Siegeles donated $5,000 to the Siegele scholarship with 
additional funding coming from Exxon Oil and Gas Co., making the 
scholarship worth $20,000 per year. The scholarship was awarded to a 
sophomore in mechanical engineering with a minimum of 3.3 grade 
point average. 

"I donated mainly for the scholarship funds (instead of endowment 
funds)," Harold Siegele, Houston, Texas, resident, said. "I feel that every 
student that has the ability should be able to go to college, and I think 
Kansas is a great place to go." 

The Siegeles also donated $10,000 to the Rathbone Engineering 
Scholarship, an endowment scholarship, which was a compilation from 
the KSU Foundation of varying fund values. The scholarship was 
awarded once a year to continuing engineering students with leadership 
skills and high academic standing. 

Harold Siegele graduated in chemical engineering in 1947 from K- 
State, and served as 1944 student body president before he went into the 
Navy. Harold Siegele served on the College of Engineering Scholarship 
Campaign Committee, the KSU President's Club and the KSU 
Benefactor's Circle. Mary Siegele received a degree in biology in 1948 
from K-State. By Ella Sweazy

From butterflies to blossoms, phase one expansion of 
growing project helps brighten campus landscape. 


Phase one approached completion. The plan 
to transform a 12-acre plot of campus land into 
a botanical paradise began to materialize with 
the first of three developmental stages for 
Kansas State University Gardens. 

The Oct. 8 dedication of the Conservatory, 
which also housed the Butterfly Pavilion, 
presented one of University Gardens' 

"The whole ambience of the pavilion 
transports people to another world," said Ralph 
Charlton, Butterfly Pavilion director and 
entomology associate professor. "It occupies the 
senses with the sight of the flowers and the smell 
of the earth. I can see the thrill on people's faces 
when the butterflies are swirling around their 
heads. It's a real plus to have a nice facility in a 
small town like Manhattan." 

Charlton said the pavilion provided a good 
example of biological control for entomology 
students. Because pesticides could not be used, 
he said students learned about using natural 
control agents compatible with the butterflies, 
like ladybugs. 

Horticulture majors obtained direct benefits 
from University Gardens as well, said Sara 
Morton, Horticulture Club president and senior 
in horticulture. 

"It used to be that the only way to learn about 
plant materials and affective factors like 
temperature and sunlight, etc., was through 
slides, books or greenhouses," Morton said. 
"Where the gardens come into play is that now 
we can study plants outside in a more native 
habitat and see for ourselves the natural 
responses they have to the seasons or pests." 

University Gardens' expansion plans 
incorporated several occupational opportunities 
into educational curricula for a variety of majors, 
said Scott McElwain, University Gardens 
director and research assistant in horticulture 
forestry and recreation. 

"We had a lot of help from a lot of depart- 
ments," McElwain said. "Interior architecture 
and design students helped with the layout of 
the visitors' center, marketing students helped 
with the merchandising for our gift shop and 
construction science students helped with 

The development of University Gardens, 
however, could not rely on non-monetary 
donations alone. A $12-million price tag came 
with the project's 12-acre vision, extending its 
location from Denison to the Veterinary 
Medicine Complex. McElwain estimated a five- 
to-seven year completion date, depending on

the availability of funds. 

"This is all done by donation and gift-in-kind," 
McElwain said. "If we had the money in hand, we could 
shoot for a couple of years, but we need sponsors to 
construct gardens and put money into an endowment to 
help maintain everything. It's one thing to put things in, 
and an entirely different thing to actually maintain them." 

Despite the lack of monetary resources, McElwain said 
University Gardens would eventually contain features 
such as an outdoor amphitheater, a tiered lake system and 
limestone walls to enclose the entrance. In addition, the 
final product's blueprints showed plans for 15 specialty 
gardens that would cater to both students and the public. 
These included water gardens, a children's garden, a 
sensory garden and a poisonous plant garden. 

"It's an amazing design. There's something for 
everybody," Morton said. "Horticulture therapy students 
can use the sensory garden, and the poison garden allows 
vet med students to identify plants that they might 
encounter when working with animals." 

University Gardens also offered ideas to guests looking 
to start or improve their home landscapes, Morton said. 

Christina Houlton, former University Gardens 
employee and senior in horticulture, said her work 
increased her knowledge and desire for a horticulture 

"The hands-on experience and general information I 
received from my internship at the gardens reinforced 
what I wanted to do for my future," Houlton said. "I did 
anything from planting and pruning to repeatedly 
cleaning the fountain when it got hit with boxes of Mr. 

Houlton said the interaction with office workers and 
professors proved to be another positive aspect of her 
participation in University Gardens. 

"It was great to get to know everyone I worked with," 
Houlton said. "They saw my involvement and knew I was 
taking my major seriously." 

McElwain said the University Gardens' completion 
would bring positive publicity to the university, as well 
as visitors to Manhattan. 

"Right now people don't realize how large this project 
is going to be," McElwain said. "We're talking about a 
world-class, top-of-the-line operation. People will come 
from all over to see the University Gardens because of what 
it offers. It's a place to come relax and enjoy the beauty 
around us, leaving the chaos and troubles of life behind."

Safe airborne 


Grant provides chance for students to gain hands-on 
experience, research for Federal Aviation Administration 

Over a course of six years the Federal 
Aviation Administration granted psychol- 
ogy professors Kip Smith and Jim Shanteau 
$153,000 to finance students who expressed in- 
terest in FAA research. 

While the FAA ensured the safety of airborne 
planes, Smith and Shanteau studied how FAA 
workers improved safety, technology and 
efficiency, instead of computers. 

"There are many improvements that are 
being proposed," Shanteau said. "However, the 
human implications of these changes need to be 
closely evaluated." 

Paul Mafera, graduate student in human 
factors engineering, conducted his research on 
FAA's human aspect. Over the summer, Mafera 
worked with flight dispatchers from Northwest, 
Continental and American airlines at Kansas 
City International airport, and discovered a clear 
gap in communication between airlines and air 
traffic control systems. 

While working with flight dispatchers, 
Mafera helped them communicate between the 
control tower and pilots. The communications 
included restriction information about weather 
conditions, air traffic levels and equipment 
quality assurance. Computers relayed 
restrictions to the dispatchers in a text message 
format. Mafera said he discovered incomplete 
and inefficient text messages. 

Mafera focused on developing a tool to 
improve information conditions. Beyond 
discovering a better way to convey messages, 
he also worked to display the information on 
graphs. After graduation he planned on 
developing software for monitoring and 
controlling air traffic control. 

"It has been a very beneficial experience for 
me," Mafera said. "Working on this grant has 
enabled me to observe first-hand the dynamics 
of air traffic flow management." 

Cameron Shelton, sophomore in computer 
information systems, worked with Mafera to 
write a programming code for the evaluation 
tool Mafera planned. 

"Working here is probably the best 
experience anyone in my position couldpossibly 
hope for," Shelton said. "First, most of the stuff 
I do here is three times as hard as the stuff I do 
in class. Second, I work on a very large program. 
This just can't be done in any class. But most of 
all I just really get to see a completely different 
perspective on just about everything." 

Smith said he would like graduate and 
undergraduate students to be involved. 

"All they have to do is volunteer their time," 
Smith said. "If they like it and prove their mettle 
during the school year, I will support them with 
research assistantships during the summer and 
perhaps the next year."

Internet book distributors offer

Cheaper books 

Anew fad for the $2.7 billion college textbook 
industry provided students an alternative 
to local bookstores. Textbook prices drove some 
college students to purchasing online for a faster, 
more convenient way to save money. 

The average student spent about $350 per 
semester on textbooks, said Carrie Mitchell, K- 
State Student Union's assistant bookstore 
manager and book division manager. The 
Internet offered students the opportunity to 
purchase class materials on Web sites like, and offered a flat delivery rate of 
$4.95, but only sold new textbooks. A student 
could buy a cheaper used book at the Union or 
Varney's bookstores. 

Amy Diller, lead campus representative for, said although they only sold 
new textbooks it took out the intermediary, who 
would increase the textbooks' costs. 

"I saved money when I purchased online and 
one of my friends saved $40 by getting her 
textbooks online," Diller said. "It only takes 
about three minutes, and the site is so easy to 
work you don't have to hassle with anything." 

Mitchell questioned the savings advertised 
online and their return/refund policies. 

" only sells new books, but 
75-80 percent of those new books are more 
expensive than our used books," Mitchell said. 
"The Union also offers a cash-back refund when 
a receipt is shown, but with online returns a 
student would have to wait." 

This aspect of online purchasing had some 
students questioning the positive aspects of 
buying online. 

"I don't want to have to box it up and mail it 
back if I decide to drop the class," Leslie Stewart, 
senior in elementary education, said. "It seems 
like such a pain and you don't get your money 
back right away." 

With increasing competition, the Union 
found ways to stay competitive, Mitchell said. 

"We are trying to be more aggressive in 
ordering larger quantities and having a larger 
availability of books," Mitchell said. "Students 
and faculty will not have to wait for us to order." 

Mitchell said to find the best deal a person 
must compare new and used book prices at the 
local and online bookstores along with knowing 
shipping costs. 

"The best way to save the most money is to 
become an all-around comparison shopper," 
Diller said.

While walking across campus in between classes, 
students faced advertisements for campus involvement 
opportunities, ranging from the Ballroom Dance Club 
to Williston Geology Club. • Organizations formed to 
compliment almost every student's interest and major. • 
Sports clubs grew and changed on campus. The 
Wrestling Club gained the supervision and advice of a 
new coach, who helped them learn new moves and gain 
endurance for upcoming meets. • K-State-Salina 
changed its rules for intramural sports, incorporating 
Recreational Services' regulations. In between changes 
and plans for improvement, both areas hoped to become 
more involved to increase group membership. • Another 
club focused on preparation for its club members' 
careers. Powercat Masters Toastmasters taught students 
to overcome public speaking fears. Toastmasters 
challenged students to practice speaking to an audience 
to aid job preparation. In between fears of the interview 
process and the hope for desired employment, students 
learned to use a group on campus to their advantage.

Anew international relations honor society, Sigma Iota 
Rho, formed at K-State in January. 

Any student with a 3.2 GPA, a junior standing and at 
least 20 hours of international relations qualified for 
membership. International relations courses could include 
anthropology, economics, history, political science, foreign 
language and geography. Jeffrey Pickering, adviser and 
assistant professor in political science, said the growth in 
international programs made this a good time to get 
involved on campus. 

"Sigma Iota Rho would be good for those students 
who want to pursue international careers," he said. "This 
is one small step to help broaden international studies at 

Advertisements to apply for membership, posted 
inside most campus buildings, produced 14 students. To 
acquire more members, the organization wanted to 
produce an active image on campus which included 
programs, like speakers or films, but Pickering wanted to 
leave the choice of activities up to the members. 

Pickering also wanted to leave officer elections up to 
the members. At the first meeting Jan. 27, the members 
elected a president, vice president and treasurer. 

The group elected Karen Gaffin, senior in political 
science, as president, Micaela Simmons, junior in political 
science and international studies, as vice president and 
Jennifer Healy, senior in political science and modern 
languages, as treasurer. 

The new executive committee had ideas for activities 
and how to increase membership. Members wanted to get 
the word out to different departments by advertising and 
accepting more applications in the spring. 

Simmons expressed an interest in participating in the 
Model United Nations. This program, designed for high 
school and college students, included a chance to learn 
more about the UN and its process. 

"I think we are pretty serious about going to a local 
Model UN conference, and it should be fun," she said. 

Gaffin said the activities they planned would help 
attract new members. 

Gaffin said this provided an opportunity for students 
with different majors to come together and discuss issues 
pertaining to international relations. 

"It's helpful to talk to other students about their 
experiences and plans," she said. "Also it will help 
networking with other students and the people they 
already know." 

During Sigma lota Rho's first meeting Jan. 27, 
faculty adviser Jeffrey Pickering speaks to 
members in Waters Hall. The new honorary for 
international relations students elected Karen

Temporarily receiving a convenient place 
to park was as simple as having one's name 
drawn from a paper bag for those entered in 
the Society of Women Engineers' raffle in 
Durland Hall Feb. 4. The raffle gave anyone 
with a valid parking pass and $1 for a ticket 
the chance to win spaces reserved for Terry 
King, dean of engineering, and Richard 
Hayter, Kansas Industrial Extension Service 
associate dean and professor. 

The society made $100 by raffling three 
different time periods when the deans would 
be out of town. The first-prize winner won 
King's 24-hour space Feb. 7-11, second won 
the same space Feb. 14-16 and third won 
Hayter 's 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. space Feb. 7-9. 

"I got the idea to do this at a fundraiser 
idea-generating session at a national 
convention," said Jennifer Grennan, vice 
president and junior in industrial 
engineering. "I proposed it to the president 
and our adviser and Dean King, and then I 
worked out the scheduling with his secretary. 
Dean Hayter talked to us last-minute and 
wanted to pitch in, too." 

King said he thought the raffle provided 
an enticing benefit for those who entered. 

"Parking is quite a valuable commodity 
on campus," he said. "The parking spot 
might as well be put to use when I'm not 
occupying it. A lot of organizations struggle 
for funds, and this is a creative suggestion." 

Mark Clarke, first-place winner and 
senior in information systems, said he 
decided to buy a ticket because he had 
previous knowledge of the society. 

"I had an employee who was the 
president of a chapter of the society at 
Wichita State," Clarke said. "I was walking 
through Durland and there were some girls 
selling tickets; they hit me up for a dollar." 

Clarke said although he appreciated 
winning, he planned on giving his prize to 
those who could make better use of it. 

"I go to work at 7 a.m., so there are plenty 
of good parking spots when I get there," 
Clarke said. "It's a battle even for employees 
to find a decent spot, so I gave one day each 
to five women who work with me who don't 
usually get good parking spots. It'll get me 
in good with all the ladies in the office. It was 
worth more than one dollar."

Team prepares for national competition 


K-State Salina Flight Team members made 
the club successful by practicing ground events 
four times a week and flying on Sundays to 
place 2nd at regionals. The 20 flight team mem- 
bers' goal was to place in the top 10 at the Na- 
tional Safety And Flight Evaluation Conference 
in May 2000, their 10th year anniversary. 

"This is a dream of 
my life," Kevin 
Herndon, sophomore 
in airway science, 
said. "I have wanted 
to fly since I was five 
years old. My dream 
is coming true." 

The National In- 
tercollegiate Flying 
Association con- 
ducted the regional 
and national events. 
Sixty-five schools 
competed at the regional event, and only the top 
three teams advanced to the national champi- 
onship. Teams consisted of 10 members. Each 
member competed on his own and then points 
were combined for the team placing. 

Practicing 12 hours a week paid off when 
the team placed second and won the safety 
award at regionals in Stillwater, Okla., Oct. 10, 
Coach Luke Scott, senior in airway science, said. 

Competitions consisted of four major flying 
events and six ground events. The 10 events in- 
cluded aircraft recognition, cross-country navi- 
gation and power-off landings. These events 
entailed visual tests, aircraft recognition and

In 1999, the team placed 11th at the National 
SAFECON event. With dedicated members and 
year-round practice, Scott said he hoped to see 
the team in the top 10 at nationals. 

"We can always do better," Scott said. "It is 
encouraging that we have continued to place 

better and better each 

The team partici- 
pated in the National 
SAFECON competi- 
tion May 15 in 
Greenville, Miss. The 
team competed in the 
weeklong competi- 
tion the last three 
years, hosting the 
event in Salina the 
past two years. 

Trey Forrest, jun- 
ior in airway science, competed in the national 
competition last year, his second year as a team 

"It is a lot of practice to get one chance to 
show what I can do," he said. "I look forward 
to competing. It gives me a chance to meet other 
competitors and contacts for the future." 

Financial support was one of the biggest ob- 
stacles for the team, Scott said. To practice fly- 
ing during the week cost students $30 to $40. 
"The business we are in costs a lot of 
money," Scott said. "What we do is expensive. 
But this is our way of competing with things 
we know how to do."

For the first time, the K-State Mortar Board National 
Senior Honor Society simultaneously won the two highest 
rankings at the national convention in Columbus, Ohio, July 

"For our chapter we feel like it was a great 
accomplishment," Molly White, president and senior in 
psychology, said. "We were proud of last year's group." 

The members wrote a letter nominating Jan Wissman, 
one of Mortar Board's three advisers and associate dean of 
the College of Education, for the honor with 10 other 
advisers. Wissman won the 1999 Excellence in Advising 
Award during the awards banquet July 24. 

"It's a really big honor to receive that," White said. "She 
has exemplified the ideals of Mortar Board and provided 
excellent service, guidance and support to the chapter." 

Mortar Board also won the 1999 Chapter of Excellence 
Award for the fifth-consecutive year. Requirements for the 
Chapter of Excellence Award included submitting reports 
and completing a service project as a group, in coordination 
with the national theme, "Learning Has No Boundaries." 

Because the national theme changed for the school year, 
members had to think of a new project in coordination with 
"Reading Is Leading. " Mike Brown, adviser and United 
Way volunteer, recommended a project with Manhattan Day 
Care and Learning Centers, Inc. The 58-child day care did 
not always get the funding it needed, making book 
purchases difficult, Brown said. Each week, two Mortar 
Board members visited the children and read books to them, 
and then left the books for the day care's further use. 

"The influence of college students leaves a big 
impression on youngsters," Brown said. "Besides having 
good quality books, we're hopefully giving them a good 
start for education and learning." 

The collection, totaling more than 60 books, came from 
donations and grant money. Mortar Board applied for and 
received one of 11 grants, worth $150. Marjorie Hancock, 
elementary education professor, critiqued children's books 
for publishers and donated more than 40 books. The 
Children's Book Shop also offered Mortar Board a group

discount, because the purchases went to a local non-profit 

Benefits, other than building up the day care's library, 
came with the donations. 

"I think it's a real positive kind of interaction," Adene 
Winter, the day care's director said. "They enjoy the new 
books and the one-on-one interaction with college 

Besides the service project necessary to win a chapter 
award, Mortar Board also continued annual projects, such 
as baby-sitting for students during finals week, organizing 
an administrative forum and sponsoring the 10th Kansas 
Academic Decathlon. 

The two-day event determined which of 17 high 
schools would represent Kansas at the National Academic 
Decathlon. The students took campus tours and 
participated in both speech interviews and essay contests 
about the year's topic, "The Sustainable Earth." The 
combined scores determined the winner, Shawnee Mission 
East, would represent Kansas at the national competition 
in San Antonio, Texas. Mortar Board was also the only 
college organization to sponsor a decathlon. 

"I think it went really, really well," said Emily Howard, 
academic decathlon chairman and senior in accounting 
and finance. "We had 180 students and everyone enjoyed 
it. I think it inspired us to make it better."

The third graders waved their hands eagerly. Each 
wanted the chance to help put together the deluxe 
cheeseburger at the front of the room. They wanted to place 
the giant slice of cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomato, onions 
and strips of ketchup and mustard on the giant, stuffed 

The Collegiate CattleWomen used the giant 
cheeseburger to demonstrate the different food groups at 
McKinley Elementary School in Abilene, Kan., Jan. 28 in 
honor of Kansas Day. The women gave five 45-minute 
presentations throughout the day to second and third 
grade students about Kansas' history and its agricultural 
background, especially beef and wheat, the hamburger's 
two biggest parts. The presentation was part of the 
CattleWomen's Ag Venture program. 

"It's to get out and talk to kids about ag," said Allison 
Anderson, Ag Venture chairperson and sophomore in 
animal sciences and industry. "We talk about history and 
that kind of thing." 

Karen Jones, American National CattleWomen Beef 
Education Chair, said promoting the cattle industry was 
the organization's main objective, and the presentation 
helped educate the children. 

"We call this (lack of knowledge) being ag illiterate," 
Jones said. "The amount of knowledge the children will 
gain will be tremendous." 

The demonstration also taught the children how people 
used other parts of the cow. Jamie Bruce, Collegiate 
CattleWomen president and senior in animal sciences and 
industry, said manufacturers used 99 percent of each cow. 
Besides meat and leather, byproducts included gummy 
bears, glue, deodorant and adhesive bandages. 

"The kids are really intelligent," said Julene Sylvester, 
senior in human ecology and mass communications. 
"Many knew exactly what byproducts were." 

Bruce said she enjoyed giving the presentation because 
it helped the children understand where food came from. 

"I'm sure many kids don't have any idea about Kansas' 
ag aspect," Bruce said. "It plays an important role in their 
life everyday." 

Donna Reynolds, McKinley third grade teacher, said 
hearing college students speak made the presentation 
more meaningful to the children. 

"It was very helpful," Reynolds said. "The teachers can 
say lots of things and they tune us out. If it's somebody 
different they tend to listen."

Bible study supports Christian faith 


Zoe Bible study united fraternity and 
sorority members as they shared peace, love and 
encouragement in larger numbers than ever. 

Founded in spring 1998, the group's creation 
enabled students to concentrate on sharing 
Christian faith among greeks. Zoe grew from a 
small spin-off of about 10 students in Campus 
Crusade for Christ's Bible study, to an 
organization of 30 to 40 members. 

"There were a lot of greek students involved 
in other Bible studies on campus, so I could 
sense the greek community wanted a place 
where they could come and share their faith 
with each other," said Chris Gadsen, Campus 
Crusade for Christ sponsor. "I really wanted 
something that would help bring greeks 
together and set a good image for others." 

Zoe, meaning "spiritual life" in greek, was a 
place where greek students could discuss their 
Christian faith at 7 p.m. every Monday in the 
Chi Omega house. 

"This year, we had a lot more regulars, which 
created a bond within the group," Stephanie 
Blevens, sophomore in elementary education, 
said. "And because the group was co-ed, it dealt 
with relationships and helped give answers that 
other Bible studies didn't." 

The group also incorporated a video series 
and a coffeehouse, where students drank coffee 

and played games to take a break from regular 
Bible study. The state catalytic director, who 
organized Christian events, Mark Hansard, also 
spoke in a four-part series to the group. 

"I was so excited to speak to the group, to 
help answer questions they had, not only about 
the series on the Resurrection, but also any other 
questions in general," Hansard said. "I always 
enjoy working closely with students to help 
them grow in Christian faith." 

Zoe members participated in outreaches 
during the year to share Christian faith with 
others. One of the outreaches was Feb. 17, where 
guest speaker Keith Johnson discussed the 
topic, "Does every road lead to God?" 

"I'd like to think that we all influenced and 
spread ideals among other students by the 
outreaches," Travis Morgan, junior in business 
management, said. "I really hope to see greeks 
influenced so Zoe can eventually have every 
(greek) house represented." 

Zoe members said the organization helped 
them start the week with a more focused and 
positive attitude. 

"It brought together diverse people and 
brought a new perspective about spiritual life," 
Julie Graves, sophomore in apparel marketing 
and design, said. It was just a way to start out 
the week with a good mind set."

Facing low to mid-20 degree temperatures Feb. 5, eight 
Williston Geology Club members almost got lost on a hiking 
trail to Crystal Quarry at Milford Lake. 

"We've never been here before," Troy Johnson, president 
and junior in geology, said. "Normally we're more organized 
than this. We just don't know where we're going, and the 
trails aren't where they're supposed to be on the map." 

After splitting into small teams to find the quarry, the 
members found the correct path. Armed with picks, rock 
hammers and hand lenses, the group collected rocks, 
minerals and fossils, but mostly searched for geodes, or 
hollow rocks filled with crystals, typically found in limestone 
and shale. 

"You can usually tell it's a geode when there is a spherical 
shape to the rock," Monica Clement, adviser and geology 
instructor, said. "If you tap on it with a rock hammer and it 
sounds hollow, or if it is very light for its size." 

Mostly, quartz, calcite and gypsum crystals, all white to 
clear minerals, formed inside the geode. Geologists 
determined the kind of crystal by differences in strength and 
shape. Quartz scratched glass, calcite fizzed when the 
geologists applied hydrochloric acid and gypsum did neither 

"We found quite a few geodes, but not of great quality," 
Clement said. "I'd like to go back and look for better quality. 
Bigger crystals or a better shape. They were all either flat for a 
geode or broken up. I'd like to find some whole ones." 

The hands-on experience helped students learn, Clement 

"The lab of a geologist is outside," she said. "The more 
you get out there to apply what you know, the better your 
education. The best place to do geology is outside. It is 
different to see a sample in lab than to see it where the rock 
happens, its environment." 

They took about 50 geodes to Thompson Hall for cleaning 
after three hours of collecting, Johnson said. The members 
soaked the samples in water, scrubbed them with 
toothbrushes and let them dry. Some samples were sawed 
open with a rock saw, and others were polished. The group 
stored the samples in boxes or trays in Thompson Hall.

Holding her findings, Tibi Marin, graduate 
student in geology, shows Troy Johnson, club 
president and junior in geology, a few chunks 
of calcium carbonate. "I'd never seen formations 
like that before," Marin said. "The calcium 
carbonate was growing vertically in the cracks 
in the clay. What happened was the clay would 
be wet and soggy, and then it would become 
dry and crack. The calcium carbonate would 
seep up from the limestone and deposit in the 
cracks." (Photo by Steven Dearinger) 

Members of the Williston Geology Club scour 
the area searching for geodes. On other field 
trips during the year, the group searched for 
barite roses, pyrites, kimberlites and fossils. The 
group tried to plan two to three day-long field 
trips and one weekend trip each semester.

"This is our first year at Milford," Johnson said. 
"Usually we go to Lake Kanapolis, where we find barite 
roses (clear, white or pinkish minerals shaped like 
roses), pyrite (Fool's Gold) and kimberlites. Kimberlites 
are one of only two igneous rocks natural to Kansas. I 
heard a rumor that the rocks were better at Milford and 
decided to check it out." 

Johnson's rumor investigation proved beneficial to 
the group since finding new collection sites offered a 
challenge to local geologists, Clement said. 

"If anyone finds or hears about a site, they share it 
with the group," Tibi Marin, graduate student in 
geology, said. "Three or four heads are better than one. 
You find more that way." 

Johnson said he contacted the Milford Lake office, 
and they told the group it could collect samples. 

"They're pretty flexible if it's for academic 
purposes," Johnson said. "It's real informal. They just 
told us not to deplete the area." 

They planned two to three day-long field trips each 
semester, Clement said, which five to 10 people usually 

The group gathered the samples to give to campus 
visitors in free bags at the Academic Majors Fair Feb. 23 
and All-University Open House April 1. 

"We want to spark an interest in geology," Johnson 
said. "We want to convince people to have an interest in 
what we do. Normally if they take one class, they get 
really interested." 

Other recruitment strategies included posters, 
presentations, rock and fossil displays, departmental 
information and videos. The group set up a seismometer 
to show Earth tremors since Kansas rests on a fault zone, 
Johnson said. They also made stream tables replicating 
depositional and erosional processes and miniature 
fossil digs for children. 

Johnson said the geology department's size benefited 
its students. 

"It's one of the smallest departments, but it has one 
of the highest involvement ratios," Johnson said. 
"Everyone knows everyone. We're a pretty friendly

In April 1999 the speech and debate teams 
combined to make a No. 2 national ranking. 
It was the sixth time since 1992 that the team 
had ranked in the top five nationally. 

"I think we have most improved by 
steadying our high performance over the past 
decade," said John Burtis, director of foren- 
sics and associate professor of speech com- 
munications. "We are almost always ranked 
as outstanding, and we accomplish this in 
both speech and debate, where many univer- 
sities settle for being outstanding in just one 
or the other." 

Cross-Examination Debate Association 
members voted June 1 on the year's general 
debate topic, and Aug. 1 it released economic 
sanctions as the topic for the teams to debate. 

Speech students began preparing for 
speech events when they selected their topic. 

The speech team ranked eighth in the 
American Forensics Association National In- 
dividual Events Tournament. The 14 partici- 
pants qualified in 42 events. Each competi- 
tor was limited to six of the 11 speech events. 

Three areas divided the 11 topics. Limited 
preparation events included impromptu 
speaking and extemporaneous speaking. The 
second group of public address included in- 
formative and after-dinner speaking. Inter- 
pretation events included prose, poetry and 
program of oral interpretation. 

Involved in five of the events, Cortney 
Moriarty, freshman in journalism and mass 
communications, attended nationals April 1- 
3 with two of her events, after-dinner speak- 
ing and impromptu. 

"I think after-dinner speaking is a unique 
event that rewards competitors for their co- 
medic talents," she said. "It's one of the most 
enjoyable events to watch, and it's my per- 
sonal favorite to watch or to perform." 

On the other side of forensics, Kevin 
Zollman, junior in philosophy and third-year 
forensics member, said he spent about 40 
hours a week working with coaches or up- 
dating research and speech preparation. 

"We were very successful this year and 
it reflects how hard we have worked," 
Zollman said. "It is a constant process of 
getting better."

In its third year, the Ballroom Dance Club took six K-State students 
to the third Swinger's Ball at The Bottleneck in Lawrence Dec. 17. 
Although none of the K-State contestants had more than a year of 
swing experience, two of the duos swept first and second. 

John Jasso, sophomore in speech, and Susan Rogers, sophomore in 
music education, won first place at the contest. 

"It felt great," Rogers said. "John and I were really surprised and 

Josh Hernandez, swing instructor and graduate student in speech, 
said he enjoyed his students' success at the competition. 

"I was happy for them, just because I think that they love to dance," 
Hernandez said. "They realized technique is important because 
technique makes you a dancer, not just the steps. You must understand 
the culture to dance well because they can immerse themselves in the 
culture, music of swing, specifically the Lindy Hop." 

The competition, which included dancers from Lawrence, the 
Kansas City area and Topeka, began at 9:30 p.m. The first round 
included five heats of five couples. After the group narrowed to six 
couples, the remaining dancers performed to another song. Three 
judges determined the best contestants on dance technique, creativity 
and overall presentation. Two K-State couples won first and second. 

"It was totally cool," said Rachel Koch, second-place winner and 
sophomore in journalism and mass communications. "We were really 
pumped. We were hoping K-State would get the top three. We're not 
competitive, and we're all friends. We were super happy to get second 
and when John and Suzie got first, we were very excited." 

Although this served as the first off-campus competition for the 
club, self-assurance was not a problem, said Jason Baldridge, Koch's 
partner and sophomore in health. 

"We were practicing one hour every night by then, and we were 
much more confident." Baldridge said. "We already had a small 
competition within the club. Matching outfits helped too." 

Hernandez had already taught lessons for the Union Program 
Council for three semesters when he decided to also give lessons for

the Ballroom Dance Club. Hernandez, who also taught 
Argentine tango, cha cha and meringue, began giving free 
swing lessons at Lucky BrewGrille. As a preview to the 
next semester's classes, Hernandez taught a few new 
dance steps every week. 

Enrollment in classes meant automatic membership in 
the Ballroom Dance Club. However, the club did not 
require enrollment in social dance classes. 

Baldridge and Koch both started taking lessons at 
Lucky BrewGrille and decided to 
continue when the lessons moved 
to the International Student Center. 

"Both John and I love to dance," 
Rogers said. "It sounded like fun, 
and I like the music. It was a good 
way to do something with my 
fiance, keep in shape and have a 
good time." Some swing class 
students came from Hernandez's 
private classes. Zenia Lee, program 
coordinator for continuing 
education, and her husband, Curt 
Wood, began taking lessons through 
University for Mankind three years 
ago when their children went away 
to college. After taking Argentine 
tango from Hernandez in the fall, 
Lee and Wood decided to join a 
swing class in addition to their 
private arumba and cha cha 
lesssons. On Hernandez's suggestion, they enrolled in 
Swing II. 

"We took tango in the same room with the same class 
size," Lee said. "We like the larger class, because no one is 

Wood agreed having other couples around took off 
some of the pressure. 

"The bigger the better," Wood said. "It's nice to go with 
other people." 

At the beginning of the spring 1999 semester, 
Hernandez began a Swing III class, while continuing to 
teach his other classes. He also asked Koch and Baldridge 
to co-teach Swing II. 

"When I leave here, I hope that they teach classes," 
Hernandez said. "I'm training them so they can spread 
swing in the same way."

college. "We'll really like it," Lee said. "Once we

Band increases game-day spirit in Aggieville 


For a few band members, having fun in 
Aggieville Friday nights before home football 
games became a requirement. 

The Aggieville Cat Band, comprised of eight 
marching band members, began its first year of 
touring 11 restaurants and bars to prepare fans 
for the football game. 

"It's a great way to share spirit on a Friday 
night and get pumped up for the game," Tom 
Boggs, graduate student in pre-medicine, said. 
"And we could get the word out about the 

The band created school spirit and provided 
music for Wildcat fans, said Cheryl Sieben, 
director of the Aggieville Business Association. 

"Last year we had a pep rally at Triangle 
Park," Sieben said. "Not many people came to 
the park. We thought, 'How can we make this 
better?' We decided that it would be easier to 
take the band to the restaurants instead of them 
coming to the park. It's been very well received." 

The crowds showed their enthusiasm for the 
band and looked forward to the band's 
performances, Sieben said. 

"I went around with the band every week 
and watched the audience reactions," Sieben 
said. "People came up to me and said how much 
they liked it. And that was community 
members, restaurant patrons, alumni, kids with 
their parents and students. People would follow 
us around and sometimes they would be 
walking by and see the band and come in to see 

The band played traditional K-State songs, 
and they also played cheers. 

Collegian Spring Advertising Staff 

"We would play Wabash Cannonball and 
Wildcat Victory and a few cheers," Boggs said. 
"We would train through the bars, and it gave 
the crowd a chance to interact with the band. 
Mostly everyone was clapping and sometimes 
we would do cheers and the crowd would sing 
along. There was good crowd participation." 

Playing in smaller restaurants and bars made 
actions and participation more difficult. 

"Some areas are pretty tight, but they work 
it out," Frank Tracz, director of bands and 
associate professor of music, said. "But there is 
a lot of school spirit, and it's good for the 
community and the kids have fun." 

The band began playing at 8 p.m. at Coco 
Bolos to start the moving pep rally. Next it 
stopped at Rock-A-Belly Deli, Porter's and 
Rusty's Last Chance Restaurant & Saloon. From 
there, it stopped at either Tula's Out of Bounds 
Sports Bar and Grill, 12th Street Pub, Auntie 
Mae's Parlor or Pat's Blue Rib'n Barbeque 
depending on the day. It would finish at Joe's 
Tap Room, Scoreboard and Pizza Hut. 

The businesses liked having the band 
because it encouraged patrons to show their 
enthusiasm for the Wildcats. 

"It got everybody fired up for the game," J.B. 
Kemper, head bartender at 12th Street, said. "I 
think it's good to have that kind of spirit around 
here for game days." 

The band's success helped create Wildcat 
spirit, Boggs said. 

"It's up close and personal with great fans," 
Boggs said. "It's a great tradition we are starting, 
and it should continue."

New organization supports dance team 


Toward the end of the football season, a new 
organization formed to benefit the Classy Cats. 
The Classy Cats Fan Club sold $12 T-shirts at 
football games to raise money to send the 
women to a national competition in April. 

Joseph Cross, sophomore in construction 
science, said he originally organized the group 
to show his support for the Classy Cats, but 
because of the positive response from T-shirt 
sales, the club became a way to help raise money. 

"One of the Classy Cats is my girlfriend," 
Cross said. "We decided to form a Classy Cats 
Fan Club because we didn't think the girls 
received enough recognition for all the hard 
work that they do." 

Julie Graves, Cross' girlfriend and 
sophomore in apparel design, said Cross did not 
discuss creating the fan club with her. 

"There was a big sign at the (football) game," 
Graves said. "That's when I saw it for the first 
time. I thought it was really cool and wondered 
if people would follow." 

Quinten Austin, co-founder of the club and 
junior in operations management, said he also 
noticed the sign in the stands. 

"I was on my way to sit down," Austin said. 
"(Cross) was there with a sign that said 'Classy 
Cat Fan Club,' and I asked him if I could join. 
He said 'OK' and we were the first two 

The T-shirts, with the words printed "Class 
just doesn't get any better than this . . . Classy 
Cats Fan Club," raised more than $100 for the 
Classy Cats from the 48 sold. Because of the 
expense for going to nationals in Daytona, Fla., 

Collegiate CattleWomen 

the Classy Cats could not afford to go. Cross 
said the funds raised in the fall would be saved 
for a gift next year. 

"I was surprised that we sold all the shirts 
as fast as we did," he said. "When I first came 
out with the idea, I started taking orders. When 
we started wearing them, I just brought the 
extras we had to the games and sold them 

Cross said he sold most of the shirts to 
people in the ICAT section at the stadium, and 
because the price difference between the cost 
and the sale of the shirts were insignificant, he 
did not raise a lot of money. In addition, Cross 
said he received skepticism from others who 
only thought of the fan club as a way for guys 
to get closer to the women, which Graves 
believed to be untrue. 

"I'd like to see the group grow larger and 
sit together," Cross said. "It's not just an 
organization for guys either. Some girls wanted 
to buy T-shirts, and we went through the first 
set so fast, that everyone who wanted one didn't 
get one." 

Austin said the fan club had no membership 
requirements except to support the Classy Cats 
by purchasing T-shirts and attending games. 
About 15 students joined the club, including 
Classy Cats' family members. 

"We're going to try and get stuff started a 
lot earlier," Austin said. "We know now that 
a lot of people are interested in it. We didn't 
think it would turn out to be a big deal. What 
started out to be a fun idea, turned out to be 
an actual club."

The Architectural Engineering Institute made their 
name known not only on campus, but throughout the 
area through Riley County Project Impact. Project Impact 
built disaster-resistant communities. AEI constructed a 
Taking Shelter From the Storm model, a project the 
Federal Emergency Management Agency and Kansas 
Masonry Industry Council funded. 

"The main reason why we are doing this is to get 
recognition for AEI and K-State," 
Clay Cline, co-chairperson and 
senior in architectural engineering, 
said. "A large number of contractors 
will be able to see the work that we 
have done for this project." 

Twelve architectural engineering 
students produced a 3-by-5-foot 
model of a house with a safe room 
inside that could withstand more 
than 250 mph wind. Model 
production began mid-fall semester 
and ended by Feb. 11. 

The model appeared first at K- 
State's Open House March 30 
through April 1. After Open House, 
Project Impact set up displays at 
locations throughout the county for 
public access and viewing. 

"This project is a part of their 
community service that they do 
every year," said Craig Baltimore, 
assistant professor for architectural 
engineering and construction 
science. "This will only reinforce the 
reputation that they have already 
built for themselves." 
The actual structure would be made out of solid- 
grouted reinforced masonry walls with a reinforced 
concrete ceiling and a steel door, Baltimore said. 

"There are no windows in the tornado safe room," 
Baltimore said, "thus walk-in closets make a good use of 
the safe room." 

The only organization in the United States to produce 
a model for the project, KMIC gave K-State a $200 grant 
to work on the project, FEMA donated $500 for supplies. 
While he worked on the Taking Shelter From the Storm 
model, co-chairperson Chris Grant, senior in architecural 
engineering, said the group worked well as a whole. 

"It took a lot of self discipline to make sure that each 
person got their work done," Grant said. "Without an 
instructor it was also hard to get everyone to come in 
and work." 

During the final week 
of production, Clay 
Cline, senior in archi- 
tectural engineering,

At the National American Institute of Chemical Engi- 
neers Conference, a K-State professor received the Ameri- 
can Outstanding Student Chapter Adviser Award. 

Walter Walawender, chemical engineering professor, 
received the award at the Oct. 31 conference in Dallas. 

"The award is a nice personal recognition," said 
Walwender, AICE adviser for more than 25 years. "It's also 
a nice reflection of enthusiasm from the student chapter. 
Part of the criteria for the award is a student chapter that 
has shown exemplary performance throughout the year." 

K-State's chapter also received the Outstanding Stu- 
dent Chapter Award for the fifth-consecutive year at the 
conference. The students participated in the conference to 
learn more about the industry, Christina Elliot, AICE presi- 
dent and senior in chemical engineering, said. 

"Many members of AICE attend the workshops, com- 
petitions and awards brunch," Elliot said. "Usually the 
students in the nation go for just the weekend, while mem- 
bers from industry stay longer." 

Former club president, Brandon Sutton, May 1999 
chemical engineering graduate, nominated Walawender 
for the award. 

"I nominated Dr. Walawender because he has been the 
driving force for the year-to-year success of AICE at K- 
State," Sutton said. "Dr. Walawender 's enthusiasm and 
professionalism has made the student chapter at K-State 
a huge success. His work is a major reason that AICE at 
K-State has such a great tradition." 

Winning the two awards showed the effort 
Walawender put into the club, Elliot said. 

"Dr. Walawender deserved the award because he puts 
so much of his time and energy into AICE," Elliot said. 
"He works closely with the officers to ensure the neces- 
sary jobs are being completed, and he shares any new in- 
formation he might come across. He not only shows up to 
the meetings, but he offers input when semester activities 
are being planned. He makes sure no detail is overlooked." 

Elliot said Walawender 's organization helped him with 
his position as an adviser. 

"He was excited and very supportive with the KSU 
chapter's decision to host the workshops for the 1999 AICE 
National Conference held last November in Dallas," Elliot 
said. "Dr. Walawender is on the lookout for ways K-State 
can get involved on a national level and make our pres- 
ence known." 

At the National American Institute of Chemical 
Engineers Conference in Dallas Oct. 31 , Walter 
Walawender, professor in chemical engineer- 
ing, won the American Outstanding Student 
Chapter Adviser award. The club also won the 
Outstanding Student Chapter Award. (Photo

The Ecumenical Campus Ministry Christian Explorers 
organized a youth rally Jan. 22 and 23 to start the new 
semester and attract more members. David Jones, 
Presbyterian campus pastor, said the group also organized 
the event because many students involved participated 
in similar rallies during high school, but did not have the 
opportunity to continue their participation in such events 
in college. 

"It was an attempt to encourage college kids to keep 
their walk with Christ," Jones said. "Sometimes our 
spiritual lives get put on the back burner." 

Although the Christian Explorers typically had groups 
of 40 to 50 members for weekly meetings, Jones said it did 
not expect as many people for the rally because it was 
more of an experimental project to see how things would 
work for the future. 

"This was our first try, so we didn't know what to 
expect," Jones said. "Although I was hoping for more, I 
was pleased." 

Keynote speaker and Presbyterian Northern Kansas 
Youth Council member Patrick Yancey said the number 
of participants did not matter because the event had the 
potential to expand. 

"We'll focus on quality, not quantity," Yancey said. 
"This is just a seed of something that could grow. Don't 
worry about numbers. Let's just have a good time and get 

The theme of the event, "Now What?" focused on what 
life changes college students went through regarding their 
spiritual lives. 

"We're focusing on what's changed in our lives," 
Yancey said. "How did you get where you are? What do 
you do now, and where do you go from here?" 

The group began its fellowship activity with energizers 
to warm up and make everyone more relaxed. Yancey had 
the group congregate to discuss the pressures of college 
life on students and the struggles with spirituality they 
might encounter. Then they broke up into groups of two 
to three people to discuss the changes they had 
experienced since high school. They also discussed their 
views on college life, society, family and personal 

They regrouped to talk about life changes, many saying 
main life changes involved marriage and improved 
relationships with their parents. Then they broke into 
smaller groups again to discuss the changes in their faith 
journeys. Yancey led them in a discussion about decision 
making, focusing on how their decisions tended to change 
once they left home and wandered away from the church. 

"We did activities that made you apply what he was

and both were along the same lines — continuing your 
faith in an environment that's not as nurturing." 

The group also participated in a recreational period in 
the afternoon before the evening meal. After the meal, 
Jones said they broke into small groups again to plan a 
worship service for later that evening. Then, Jones said 
they hired Keith Harris, a minister from Kansas City, Kan., 
to act as a disc jockey for the dance. 

While some students who lived nearby went home for 
the night, Jones said about eight spent the night in the 
church basement. The next morning they met again for 
breakfast and a worship service. 

Yancey discussed his involvement in his church youth 
group and how things changed after he graduated from 
high school. He offered the students advice on how to 
successfully continue their faith journeys into adulthood, 
emphasizing their pasts did not matter when compared 
to their spiritual lives. 

"You are here," he said. "It doesn't matter what you've 
done to get here. You are here." 

Seidel said Yancey's message hit home with several 
students, and he presented it effectively. 

"It was a good message," Seidel said. "He talked a lot 
about changes in college. It wasn't too complicated. He 
told it just the way it was."

Jazz musician helps celebrateThai king's birthday 


On its trip to Thailand, Carnegie Hall Jazz 
Band had one of K-State's own. Dennis Wilson, 
assistant dean of arts and sciences and Carnegie 
Band founding member, played in Thailand Oct. 
26 and 27 with the Carnegie Band to help King 
Bhumibol Adulyadej celebrate his 75th birthday. 

The band stayed in Thailand for five nights 
and gave two performances, the first one open 
to the public. 

"I think the thing that intrigued me the most 
is when we started playing some of the songs 
and the people reacted," he said. "You felt this 
excited rush go through the air. That's because 
they knew the songs." 

Jon Faddis, Carnegie Band director, said the 
second show was for up-scale invitees. 

"The reaction of the audiences was totally 
different," Faddis said. "The general public was 
just screaming and they loved it. The invitees, 
which included the American ambassador to 
Thailand, were a little more reserved." 

The king's wife did not attend the second 
performance as expected since she became sick. 
The king stayed with her, Wilson said. Because 
of the queen's illness, the band missed the 
opportunity to meet the king. 

Wilson said he was more disappointed about 
not seeing the K-State exchange students 
studying in Thailand than not meeting the king. 

"It might have been hard for them to get to 
me," he said. "I told them where we were, but 
with the heads of state, you can't just get in." 

The band performed songs by several 
famous jazz artists, as well as songs written by 
the king himself. 

"At both performances we actually played 

Graduate in Food Service Management 

music written by the king," Wilson said. "He is 
a jazz artist and a saxophone player." 

Wilson said that being both a member of the 
band and part of K-State faculty required him 
to travel a great deal. 

"Upon coming to K-State, one of the 
agreements was, when Carnegie calls, I go," he 
said. "But it is great being in the Carnegie Band 
because I am able to give my students 
opportunities. If I have to go somewhere, I 
always make a connection to give some student 
an opportunity." 

Wilson made sure he did not forget his 
students when he traveled with the Carnegie 
band. He said after returning from Thailand, 
he saw students the next day. 

"One of the things that Dennis brings to the 
average jazz student is the kind of thing most 
students aren't exposed to," Michael Brown, 
junior in physics, said. "What Dennis does, 
which is kind of unique around here, is to bring 
here the very same people whose records you 
buy, who we've seen in documentaries or on 
television shows." 

Wilson said he played for presidents Ronald 
Reagan and Jimmy Carter as well as princesses 
Margaret and Anne. He also worked with well- 
known musicians, including Count Basie, Frank 
Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Tony Bennett and Bette 

Although Wilson played in major concerts 
and traveled worldwide with the Carnegie 
Band, he said his students were the most 
rewarding part of his career. 

"Nothing measures up to being a teacher," 
he said. "I'm very dedicated to my students."

Parachute Club owns first plane rather than leasing 


The KSU Parachute Club earned its wings, 

For the first time in history, KSUPC owned 
an airplane. The club bought a green Cessna 182 
in July 1999 from an individual in Louisiana. 
The single-engine, high-wing 1969 model cost 
$32,500 and could carry four jumpers along with 
the pilot. 

"It is about a nine-year newer model than 
the last plane we've had," Jesse Magaha, club 
jumpmaster and Manhattan resident, said. 

The club had always leased planes before. 
The last plane the club leased was a 1960 Cessna 
182, previously owned by Barbara Dawes of 
Manhattan. After her husband's death, she sold 
the plane and the club had to find their own. 

Rex Westmeyer, K-State alumnus and former 
club member, found the plane in Louisiana and 
flew it to Kansas after the club purchased it. 

To be used as a jump plane, the club had to 
modify the aircraft. The passenger door needed 
a new door latch mechanism installed and part 
of the door had to be removed. These 
modifications allowed the door to open easily 
from the inside and then swing upward to be 
flush against the wing without hitting the wing 

strut. The plane needed that arrangement to be 
easy and safe to exit in the air. 

The club also added a step over the 
passenger wheel and a wing latch. The step 
gave the jumpers room to put their feet and 
maneuver outside the plane before exiting, and 
the latch held the door out of the way when the 
jumpers entered the aircraft. 

The modifications took around 100 hours to 
complete and Brian Correll, president and 
senior in mechanical engineering, completed 
the work. Additional certification by the Federal 
Aviation Administration would be required 
after the modifications before the airplane could 
be used. 

"Anything you do to alter a plane you need 
FAA approval to make sure the plane is still 
safe," Correll said. "The changes won't affect 
any of the flying characteristics." 

The modifications, radio and FAA 
certification cost the club another $3,000. With 
the work finished by Sept. 11, the team could 
skydive from the plane. 

The club members have seen benefits from 
owning their own plane. Because of the new 
plane, the club could offer more classes and

"Students now know they can come out and jump at 
least once," said Bryan Stensfor, senior in management 
information systems and finance. "Obviously, if you don't 
have a plane, you can't jump." 

The club offered five instructional skydiving classes 
each semester, with about 15 students in each class. That 
made the club's membership around 100, with about 15 to 
20 members who consistently jumped. The price for the 
instructional lessons increased from $110 to $135 to 
generate more revenue to cover the expense of the airplane. 

"We get a lot of people who do the first jump," Melissa 
Fisher, secretary and senior in economics, said. "But then 
it is hard to retain people, even though it gets more 
affordable over time." 

The instructional classes' increased cost did not affect 
interest in the club. According to Stensfor, all classes were 
as full as they had been in previous years. 

"Overall, for being a collegiate club with no paid 
members to run the organization - I think we do a good 
job," Fisher said. "We are not limited to just K-State 
students, we get a lot of military, too."

ARH involves audience in skit, scenarios 

Nazi swastikas hung from the walls in Ford 
Hall's basement. As residents entered, they 
signed in and registered for processing, just like 
prisoners in a concentration camp during World 
War II. From Sept. 27 to 30, the Kansas State 
University Association of Residence Halls 
sponsored "In Your Face," a program that 
performed six skits for students, allowing them 
to observe and interact in different settings. 

Students joined five people, each led by a 
facilitator. The facilitator led the group to 
different rooms, each showing a different issue. 

"Other campuses have done similar versions 
of it," said Dawn Kramer, programming 
coordinator and junior in family and consumer 
sciences education. "In one room we had a 
person in a wheelchair, another had a keg party 
and went into a date-rape situation. Another 
door had a lot of spray-painted sexual- 
orientated slurs." 

With three months preparation and 40 
volunteers to help, Kramer said nearly 250 
students, including residents and greek 
members, attended the presentation. 

Stacie Morrison, sophomore in secondary 
education and KSUARH member, volunteered 
as a facilitator and participated in some of the 
skits. She said the presentations hit close to 
home for some participants. 

"I saw various types of reactions," Morrison 
said. "I saw some girls and some guys who, at 
the end of the presentation, were in tears. I saw 
some people who were silent, who didn't talk a 
lot and there were some angry people because 
they saw the actions going on and wanted to 


stop it, but they couldn't." 

Morrison enjoyed the reactions, and she said 
it made her feel like she had affected students 
by making it relate to their lives. 

"It's something that I think you're going to 
be better educated, by having your feelings 
come out," she said. "It made me feel like I was 
doing what I was supposed to be doing." 

In her skit, Morrison played a self-conscious 
girl who forced herself to throw-up, as well as 
a girl who committed suicide. 

"They're things that don't get in the open 
too much because people don't like to talk about 
them," she said. "I would hope the students 
who went through the program tell their 
friends, tell their floor and talk about (the issues) 
more than they have in the past." 

Erika Anderson, junior in social sciences, 
said checking in to a Nazi concentration camp 
made the presentation more realistic. 

"The one thing I remember the most was 
when the guard came in and said, T don't know 
why you're here. You could be a Jew or you 
could be a homosexual, and there's something 
different about you that we don't like,' 
Anderson said. "It just made me think about 
how people can dismiss differences and not try 
to accept people for who they are. I kind of 
looked up and giggled. They yelled at me." 

Because the audience got involved in the 
skits, Anderson said she related better. 

"No matter how they did it, they drew the 
audience into it somehow," she said. "If they 
would have just had a speaker, I probably 
wouldn't have remembered as much."

Sounds of famous country artists, including Tim 
McGraw and Garth Brooks, resonated from the K-State 
Student Union's Courtyard Feb. 3. 

The Union Program Council invited Bryson Robbins, 
country singer, guitarist and junior in business 
administration, to kick off their first Lunchtime Lounge. 

"The Special Events Committee usually puts on what 
we call courtyard events," Tim Yeaglin, UPC President and 
senior in management, said. "It's usually a local band who 
plays. We wanted to capitalize on student talent." 

Students came and went at the informal free event. 
Most stopped by the courtyard to figure out where the 
noise came from. 

"I think this is really neat," Jerod Shaw, junior in golf 
course management, said. "I heard him singing when I 
walked by. It's nice to sit back and relax over lunch time." 

Various students performed during the noon-hour 
event every other Thursday in February, March and April. 

UPC members asked Robbins to perform because he 
had performed in the Union before. 

"I'd heard good things about Robbins," said Gina 
Kimble, UPC adviser and graduate student in student 
counseling and personal services. "He had performed for 
an event similar to this last year." 

Robbins said he was happy he kicked off the event. 

"I traveled all summer from the East Coast to the West 
Coast playing," he said. "I've been taking a break this year, 
but I like to come into small areas like this every once in a 
while and just kind of keep up the tune." 

Robbins said he had been singing since high school 
and, after graduation, hoped to release his own album. 

"Country is my roots," Robbins said. "I grew up 
listening to country and singing it in my pick up." 

Mohlman said the event allowed students to see the 
different talent at K-State. 

"There are a lot of programs at K-State," she said, "and 
not everyone can see them or afford to go. This way 
students can see the talent K-State has without paying." 

Six different groups including Robbins; Disregarding 
Popularity, a folk music duo; Ballroom Dance Club; 
Cadence, a vocal music group; Men's Glee Club; and Ben 
Hensley, senior in theater, with a theatrical act, performed. 

Kimble said the most challenging part of the event was 
finding students who wanted to perform. 

"I think over time more students will volunteer because 
this is a great way to perform in front of a crowd and to 
get your name out," she said. 

Burger King co-sponsored the event and paid each 
performer $50 for their one-hour performance. 

"I think there are a lot of talented people out there," 
Kimble said. "I hope this event is an incentive for people 
to share their talent with other K-Staters."

Powercat Masters Toastmasters spoke to an 
audience of other Toastmasters to calm their 
fears. The Toastmasters officer training session 
brought seven Kansas Toastmasters clubs to 
K-State Jan. 29. 

"The workshop is held to train newly 
elected officers in clubs around our area," 
Robin Roth, president and junior in chemical 
engineering, said. "Officer training sessions 
are held twice a year to ensure all new officers 
have the information they need to fulfill their 
club roles." 

Toastmasters encouraged people to speak 
in front of their peers. The international 
organization not only included students but 
businesses as well. 

Toastmasters International had more than 
8,000 clubs, which included more than 180,000 
members. The Powercat Masters Toastmasters 
started in 1994 as a non-profit organization. 
First-time members paid a $40 fee, each 
following semester $24 covered their dues and 
the club's basic expenses, brought in guest 
speakers, paid for new members' initial 
training and recruited new members. 

"I joined Toastmasters to improve on my 
speech and communication skills," said Matt 
Ownby, vice president of membership and 
junior in mechanical and electrical 
engineering. "I also wanted to become a better 
officer, not only within this organization, but 
in all of the other clubs that I am in as well." 

In all, 15 people attended the workshop, 
three from K-State. The workshop focused on 
helping officers become effective leaders 
giving them the tools they needed to lead a 
successful organization, Roth said. 

Ownby said he wanted to recruit more 
than just students. He talked with some of his 
teachers and two faculty members in 
Toastmasters on ideas to increase the number 
of faculty in the club. One idea used e-mail to 
introduce Toastmasters to faculty members 
Ownby did not know.

"If a faculty member doesn't feel secure with 
teaching to their students, not only will he suffer, 
but the students' education will suffer," Ownby 
said. "I would like to get the faculty involved to 
help, not only the teachers, but the students as 

The Powercat Masters Toastmasters 
contained mostly students in the engineering 
college, Ownby said. Open to all students, the 
group's placement in the engineering 
department influenced the number of 
engineering majors in the club, he said. 

"With where we were situated it was easier 
to recruit engineering students," he said. "We 
welcome new members with open arms, no 
matter their major." 

Toastmasters hoped to provide a leadership 
and communication program designed to 
provide a supportive learning environment for 
people who would like to improve their 
listening and speaking skills, Roth said. 

The key speaker, Ernest Lowden, 
Distinguished Toastmasters and Lt. Governor of 
education and training, presented many ways 
for club members to improve officers' 

"I want them to have a greater 
understanding of leadership requirements," 
Lowden said. "More important, they need to 
know what it takes to become a good leader and 
use that not only with Toastmasters but in other 
organizations as well." 

Requirements for a leader were not specified 
other than being a member in good standing, 
Roth said. Usually those elected to president or 
vice president positions had been elected to 
other offices prior to that election, she said. 

Lowden had been with the Toastmasters on 
and off since 1962, and continuously with them 
since 1995. Lowden said the most exciting thing 
for him was helping someone overcome their 
fears of public speaking. 

"A young lady came to a Toastmasters 
meeting to speak to the group; she was petrified 
of speaking to a large group of people," Lowden 
said. "I shook her hand on her way to the 
podium; they were so cold. She began speaking 
and her voice shook with every word. The next 
time that I saw her speak, you could tell how 
much Toastmasters had done for her. You have 
to overcome their fears. That is the first step. 
That is why they joined Toastmasters in the first

Two plaques, a medal, $2,000 and an all-expense paid 
trip to Costa Rica. 

Michael Springer, senior in agricultural economics, 
won those things when he received the Star Farmer Award 
at the National FFA Organization National Convention in 
Louisville, Ky., in fall 1999. 

Springer said he applied for a degree, or level of 
membership, and ended up becoming one of the finalists 
for the Star Farmer Award, the highest level of membership 
bestowed upon a member. Only one person from each state 
could be considered for the Star Farmer Award, Springer 
said, and of those considered, eight became finalists. 

"It's an honor just to get the degree," Springer said. "I 
just applied for the degree and got lucky and got chosen 
for the Star Farmer Award." 

Springer said he went to Costa Rica as part of the 
International Travel Seminar, sponsored by FFA. He said 
about 50 other national award winners went on the 
international travel program. 

Kevin Keith, Teacher Services Specialist and FFA 
national staff member, said thousands applied. 

"The FFA has 450,000 members. Out of that, 2,234 
applied for the American FFA Degree, which has high level 
of requirements for achievement, skill, scholarship and 
leadership development," Keith said. "From the 2,234 
applicants for that degree, Michael was selected." 

Abra Ungeheuer, senior in agricultural economics, said 
Springer did not apply for the degree program for the 
possibility of the award. 

"He saw it as an opportunity to display his farming 
program. A chance to share and provide motivation," 
Ungeheuer said. "Most of the people attending the 
national FFA convention are high school students. It gives 
inspiration for them to see what can be accomplished." 

Springer joined FFA in high school. Both his father and 
his grandfather were FFA members. 

"I was interested in the FFA when I was in grade 
school," Springer said. "The opportunities were attractive 
to me because they were related to agriculture." 

Kevin Donnelly, College of Agriculture assistant dean 
and adviser for the Student Ag Council, said FFA was not 
just a high school organization. 

"It takes a commitment to stay involved with the FFA 
after high school," Donnelly said. "He is a true fit to the 
model of what an FFA member is likely to be." 

Michael Springer, senior in agricultural 
' economics, won the Star Farmer Award, 
sponsored by the National FFA Organization in 
fall 1999. Springer received the award based 
on his agricultural enterprise, both on and off 
the farm, as well as his leadership and 
involvement in the FFA. (Photo by Justin

For more than three years, K-State 
Marching Band members' uniforms did not 
match until fall 1999 when members collected 
more than $100,000 from alumni 
contributions, university funding from 
President Jon Wefald, and from their annual 
fund-raiser, the Music Run. 

"If it weren't for the president, I don't think 
we would have a lot of the things that we do," 
Tom Boggs, graduate student in biology and 
senior in microbiology said. "He's one of our 
biggest supporters and one of our biggest fans." 

Wefald supported the band since 1991 
when Frank Tracz, associate professor of 
music, became the band director. In the past 
year, Wefald said he gave about $20,000 to 
$30,000 from the foundation account, 
allocating approximately $200,000 over nine 
years to the band. 

"I see band members around campus, and 
they stop me and say, 'Thanks for everything 
you've done for us,' " Wefald said. "It really 
makes you feel good." 

The band could not afford to replace the 
219 uniforms at once, they purchased in cycles 
from Fechemer in Texas to spread out the cost. 

"We've done it over the last three or four 
years," Tracz said. "We got new purple pants, 
replaced about half of the hats that they wear 
and the overlays. (Overlays) are about $90 a 
piece just for that material in the front." 

The brass section became the first to 
receive the new overlays in 1996 because the 
number of brass players matched the 100 
overlays purchased. The overlays consisted 
of a purple powercat designed by Tracz in 
order to represent K-State. 

Tremon Kizer, senior in music education, 
said the visual improvements became just as 
important as their musical improvements. 

"We get more charisma and 
encouragement," Kizer said. "They see a 
difference in sound. They like the visual 
appearance more than just the music." 

Although Boggs said he considered the 
people the most important thing about the 
group, having the same uniforms united the 

"Everybody likes being the same," Tracz 
said. "Everybody feels a part of it, nobody 
feels left out or slighted. It's kind of like 
getting a new car - you feel pretty good."

Bakery Science Club wins first place at contest 


Gingerbread people lounging in a blue- 
tinted gingerbread hot tub on a gingerbread 
deck started the details of a small gingerbread 
town in Kansas. The village, made by the Bakery 
Science Club, included M&M cobblestone 
streets, peppermint-shingled homes, green- 
frosted waffle cone Christmas trees and 
decorated marshmallow snowmen. 

"Because of time we didn't get to do 
everything to it that we wanted to," said Melissa 
Frick, club member and senior in bakery science 
and management. "We wanted to cut out the 
windows, instead of just using frosting to make 
them. And we wanted to install lights in the 
houses and on the street corners." 

The group started working on the village 
after Frick saw advertisements for Manhattan 
Town Center's first gingerbread contest. The 
Town Center organized the contest into two 
different sections, original design and kit design. 
Both sections were divided into youth, adult and 
group categories. The Bakery Science Club 
entered in the original group category against a 
local 4-H organization. Overall, the Town Center 
gave first through third place for each category, 
with a total of 15 entries in the contest. 

The village took four to five people, working 
at the baking lab in Shellenberger Hall, 10 to 12 
hours to finish. It cost $15 to $20 for the candy 
and the bakery science department donated the 
materials to make the gingerbread and frosting. 

The final village had to be supported 
underneath by plywood since it ended up being 
about 2-feet long, 1-foot wide and 1-1 /2 feet tall, 
Frick said. 

"It was all edible," Frick said. "On one house 

KSU Orrhastrn 

we wanted to add an awning on the front. The 
ceiling was too heavy and kept breaking, so we 
had to build supports out of peppermint sticks. 
There was a lot of trial and error." 

The club took first place in the contest Dec. 
12 and won a blue ribbon and a $15 gift 
certificate to any shop in Town Center. Frick 
said they wanted to use them at Mr. Bulky's so 
all the members could benefit from the win. 

Natalie Huston, Town Center marketing 
intern and senior in marketing and 
international business, said Town Center 
merchants judged the houses, which were 
displayed in Town Center's center court. 

"The entries were judged on creativity, 
originality and presentation," Huston said. 
"The contest kind of tied in with Christmas and 
the mall's gifts with purchase, which were 
gingerbread kits of a house, a sleigh or a tree." 

The club donated the village to Ronald 
McDonald House of the Heart of America Inc. 
in Leawood, Kan., as a gift, Frick said. 

"I thought it was a pretty good opportunity 
to do something different and fun that we 
hadn't done before," said Jesse Weilert, one of 
two club production managers and senior in 
bakery science and management. "There was 
no set plan; we just had to get it done." 

For three years the club had sold smaller 
gingerbread houses for $15, gingerbread 
families for $5 and gingerbread trees for $3 
before Christmas. The products were pre- 
ordered, which this year totaled 39 orders. 

The funds raised from gingerbread sales and 
the club's weekly bake sales, went toward 
sponsoring members' baking convention trips.

Rock and Ice, a rock climbing enthusiast magazine out of 
Boulder, Colo., featured the KSU Rock Climbing Club in their 
March 2000 issue because they climbed without mountains. 
"It's an honor for us to be in a leading climbing maga- 
zine," Michael Barnthouse, president and junior in chemical 
engineering, said. "It's pretty cool." 

Aaron Gunney, Rock and Ice managing editor, said the 
idea came from freelance writer Alii Rainey, whose parents 
lived in Lawrence. 

"She told us of a small but devoted contingency of rock 
climbers who lived there, who 
were really psyched about climb- 
ing," Gunney said. "Conven- 
tional wisdom says there is not 
any real climbing in Kansas to 
speak of, so we were immediately 
piqued. How do these people ac- 
tually live in Kansas and stay 
psyched about the sport?" 

The article featured other rock 
climbing organizations through- 
out Kansas, including the Univer- 
sity of Kansas Rock Climbing 

"Many people probably live in

the same situation, or similar 

ones, as climbers in Kansas," 

Gunney said. "They've had a 

chance to try the sport, and, 

though there may not be the best 

climbing near where they live, they were hooked. So, they 

make the best of what they have near them in the way of 


Holli Palmieri, sophomore in elementary education, said 
climbing with climbers like Rainey and photographer Corey 
Rich helped the club realize their potential. 

"Alii was really good," she said. "And it's pretty cool that 
a lot of the guys could still keep up with her." 

Rainey said she hoped the article would dispel stereotypes. 

"I think that places like Kansas are never thought of as 
places where rock climbers could possibly live and love the 
sport, and my article aims to show that this is not the case," 
she said. "I hope the club feels that they are being recognized 
for their commitment to a sport against all odds. I think it 
was fun for them to talk about rock climbing with people from

other, more climbing-saturated areas and to just hang 
out with us." 

Gunney said people in Kansas could find it harder 
to stay committed to the sport, but that only made him 
happier to hear about clubs like K-State's. 

"I'm excited to hear about pockets of climbers across 
the country who are as fired up about the sport as I am," 
Gunney said. "It's probably even more moving to me to 
hear about people like Michael Barnthouse, who lives 
and climbs in Kansas. It is fairly easy to live in Boulder, 
Colo., and stay interested and motivated to climb — after 
all, there is lots of great climbing here. It seems much 
harder to do it in Manhattan." 

The club climbed on West Stadium and at Rock City, 
an area about the size of two football fields filled with 
200 sandstone concretions located about four miles 
southwest of Minneapolis, Kan. In order to climb with 
the club, students had to sign a release waiver and be 
evaluated by an experienced climber to make sure they 
had enough experience to climb. 

"If something happens, the club is out the door," 
Barnthouse said. "Climbing is becoming more and more 
popular in a lot of cities, and a lot of people come out 
and say they know what they're doing, but when it 
comes down to it, they don't. We just want to make sure 
they're safe." 

While a beginner's equipment would cost about $300, 
a person could join the club and have unlimited use of 
the equipment for $5 in club dues, Barnthouse said. He 
said the club offered people who normally would not 
be able to climb — because of costs and lack of areas — 
a place to go. 

"I think it's pretty cool to see a climbing club in the 
middle of Kansas that seems to have some enthusiastic 
members who are committed to the sport," Rainey said. 
"I was rather amazed that the university allows them to 
use the stadium as a climbing gym, but it's a great wall 
to train on."

Jokes about livestock, trucks, cowboy weddings, 
women, city folk, riding bulls, roping and college 
comprised the presentation of Baxter Black, cowboy 
humorist, Feb. 5 at McCain Auditorium. 

"Black is well known across the nation; people 
always enjoy listening to him," said Katie Janssen, 
sophomore in animal science and agricultural 
economics. "He may have told you the same story three 
times, but he still gets you to laugh." 

Event sponsors included Dick Edwards Auto 
World, KXBZ-FM 104.7, Ramada Inn and Farm Credit 
Services. The rodeo team raised more than $16,680, 
from the 1,390 people who attended the poet's show. 
Black wrote from his experiences and related topics 
in his show to audience members. As a former 
veterinarian from Arizona, Black said he considered 
himself a livestock and agriculture person. 

"I do this as a living, and I don't take it lightly," 
Black said. "My inspirations from the people who write 
in to me come from those who work the land." 

Black used facial expressions to bring stories to life. 
"He tells stories about cowboys," Steve Frazier, 
rodeo coach, said. "He construes his face in more 
precarious situations than any person I know." 

Wesley Keller, junior in animal science and industry, 
said he had read and heard Black before, but had never 
seen him perform live. 

"I think that it was enjoyable for everyone there," 
Keller said. "This is a good event not only for the rodeo 
team and club but the local community as well." 

Rodeo facility construction would tentatively begin 
in 2003, Frazier said. The plans included building a new 
arena and stalls, Frazier said. 

Included with his stories about farm life, Black used 
his own writing experiences to connect with the 
audience. Black said he began writing poetry in his 30s 
when his college English instructor made him write a 
poem on religious connotations, he said. He said he 
went into his class the day after he turned in his 
assignment and saw a big, red F on his paper. His 
teacher told him he needed to write about what he 

"And that is what I have been doing," Black said. 
"I write about people and animals and how they care 
for the animals."

Dozens of pairs of shoes lined a wall of City 
Auditorium's foyer as students gathered in the gym for 
'50s-style fellowship. Christian Challenge coordinated a 
Sock Hop for members and any guests who wanted to 
attend the Oct. 29 event. 

"We wanted to have a fun, non-threatening get- 
together activity for members that also served as an 
outreach to those who have never really been involved in 
anything like Christian Challenge before," Jeena Storms, 
Christian Challenge staff member, said. "We've had other 
themes, and we'd never done a '50s Sock Hop dance. That 
seems to be popular with students today, so we wanted to 
give it a try." 

Storms estimated 150 to 200 people attended, and the 
$2 per person admission fee accounted for about $300 to 
cover costs. Christian Challenge spent about $200 on the 
event, and the rest of the money went to the social 
committee for the next activity, she said. 

Jeremy Pape, member and senior in music, said while 
he had doubts about the theme at first, he thought it turned 
out to be successful. 

"I was initially disappointed when I found out about 
the theme because I didn't know what it would be like, 
but I went anyway," Pape said. "It ended up being really 
cool, though, because the theme took the pressure and 
edge off having an actual dance and made it more 
lighthearted and easy to just goof off. It had an extra flare." 
Several details went into planning the event, said 
Christa Andersen, social committee member and 
sophomore in elementary education. After advertising 
through group meeting announcements, sidewalk chalk 
on campus and word-of-mouth, Andersen said the 
committee had to make decisions on decorations, food, 
location and activities. 

"The gym was huge, so we decided to use simple 
decorations, and we baked cookies as well as bought food 
for snacks," Andersen said. "We wanted to have the Sock 
Hop in an old school gym or somewhere nostalgic that 
felt like a '50s dance would take place. City Auditorium 
fit that look, and it was really accessible." 

Aside from the '50s theme, Andersen said a variety of 
music including oldies, country, swing, pop and 
contemporary helped attract a larger crowd. 

"Not everybody likes to dance to oldies," Andersen 
said. "We knew we could still have the '50s environment

Reid, sophomore In history, dances to an oldies

fun, and it was a place to be around other

even if we played other styles of music. There 
are a lot of people who know how to swing or 
line dance or have other preferences, and we 
wanted to appeal to as many people as possible." 

Attendees could listen to two members' 
personal testimonies. Meredith Mays, senior in 
political science, and Ricky Alvarez, junior in 
secondary education, both said after Storms' 
request they decided to share their stories of God. 

"I'd never given my testimony in front of a 
group like that before," Mays said. "I was pretty 
nervous, but I knew it was a way God could use 
me to help others, and I felt a peace about it. God 
has a big plan for K-State, and it's important for 
students to realize how much we really have in 
common and that there's a way to fill the holes 
in our lives. No matter where any of us are in 
life, we all need God." 

Alvarez said establishing a relationship with 
God allowed him to overcome his difficult past, 
and maintaining that relationship helped him 
through challenges he faced. 

"I was into drugs and alcohol and females and 
serving myself," Alvarez said. "I came to a point 
where I didn't want to live, and I broke down 
and realized I needed something, and suddenly 
I knew God was out there. I gave my life to Christ, 
and although I still encounter temptation and 
selfishness, God has turned me around and given 
me joy in my heart and a gift to speak to people 
and love them like I never had before." 

The testimonies took place at separate times 
during the dance, Pape said. 

"It was a little awkward in the beginning, but 
once the people started speaking, it was really 
great to hear what they had to say," Pape said. 
"It was also nice to have a breather. The 
testimonies balanced out the event and made it 
different. I had a way better time than I expected."

More than 80 students applied for the Cadaver Team, 
but only 36 were chosen. The few who made it had an 
advantage over other students Dana Townsend, team 
adviser and anatomy instructor, said. 

"There is nothing that can take the place of actual 
hands-on experience with a human cadaver," Townsend 
said. "The experience of working on a human cadaver is 
important in medical school and can make a resume look 
really good." 

To be considered for the team, students submitted an 
application, possessed at least a 3.5 grade point average 
in science-related classes and wrote a paragraph on why 
they wanted to be on the team. Once selected for the team, 
Townsend used the team as lab assistants. Townsend 
demonstrated to the team what was to be accomplished 
with the cadaver while in the lab, and the team then taught 
the respective labs. 

Townsend said only 5 percent of colleges, including 
K-State, used human cadavers for undergraduate studies. 
Many colleges used computer-generated software called 
the Visual Human Project, which produced 3-D 
representations of normal human bodies, in lieu of human 

Every semester for the past 20 years, the students used 
cadavers for dissection in gross anatomy classes, 
Townsend said. The cadavers used during the semester 
were donated to the biology department for academic and 
scientific purposes. She also said without the cadaver 
donations, K-State students might someday use the 
computer program instead of actual dissections for 
undergraduate studies. 

Team member Ann Barrows, sophomore in pre- 
mising, defended the use of cadavers in the classroom. 

"Not all bodies are the same," Barrows said. 
"Therefore, using the computer program could be at a 

She said she felt sad for the loss of the person's life, 
but learned to separate herself from those feelings to be 
successful in her career. 

"I've had previous experience working in a doctor's 
office," she said, "so the cadavers don't really bother me." 

Nolan Ryan, team member and junior in biology, said 
he believed the more he learned on the team and in the 
class would benefit him greatly in medical school. 

"1 already have the advantage above my peers," he 
said, "I was selected for the team."

Queer Straight Alliance and the Flint Hills 
Alliance sponsored "Chesthair" Jan. 28 and 29. 
The play, by Hersh Rodasky, followed five men 
coming to terms with homophobia. 

As the play opened, two friends, Jesse and 
Greg, are driving to an all-male weekend retreat. 
Greg is disturbed when he finds out one of his 
tent mates is gay, but as the story progresses, Jesse 
and Greg find out their stereotypes are incorrect. 
"I thought it was a great script," said Karrie 
Mitchell, QSA president and graduate student in 
student counseling and personal services. "It was 
very witty, applicable to being a gay person." 

Although written four years ago and played 
on and off since, this was the first performance of 
"Chesthair" this cast had given together. Rodasky 
previously used middle-aged men in the 
production but decided to revamp the characters. 
"This was an experiment to see if the show 
works using college guys playing college guys 
with the same issue of homophobia," Rodasky 
said. "We're sort of workshopping this show." 

Jerry Marcoe, vice president of FHA and 
Manhattan resident, saw the production in 
Omaha, Neb., in 1998 and donated $100 to make 
sure the show came. 

"It's (Manhattan) a lot more bigoted than they 
want to admit," Marcoe said. "There is a lot of 
bigotry here." 

After a year and a half of trying to find ways 
to bring the show to Manhattan, FHA and QSA 
succeeded. Rodasky found the right cast and was 
offered the right amount. Because the money, 
divided between FHA and QSA, contributed to 
scholarships, Rodasky agreed to bring the play 
to Manhattan for $500, one-third the normal price, 
through his production company, Rodasky Stage 
and Video Productions. 

Sponsors suggested $3-5 donations, but 
anyone could attend the show for free. Audience 
members contributed to the more than $450 made. 
"I think it's important for a couple of reasons," 
Jennifer Bame, FHA president and Manhattan 
resident, said. "For gay audiences, it's important 
to see plays they can relate to. It's important for 
their friends and relatives because they have to 
go through the same process of accepting." 

Rodasky said he liked using humor to address 
social issues, and the play applied to everyone. 

"The confusion is that some people think this 
is a gay play," Rodasky said. "It's a play that has 
a gay character in it and there's a gay issue, but 
straight audiences find this funny too."

Rec Services helps boost intramurals in Salina 


Thanks to a restructured program, about 150 
students participated in intramural sports 
through K-State-Salina. 

Implementing Recreational Services' 
intramural rules, as opposed to their own laid- 
back rules, made the program more organized 
and competitive, Mariana Lebron, College of 
Advancement for Student Life assistant 
director, said. 

Through Rec Services' help, K-State-Salina 
added new, more structured rules and enforced 
them by using referees trained at the Chester E. 
Peters Recreation Complex. 

"They called us in the summer, and we 
talked about stuff and then sent our rules to 
them," Steve Martini, intramural director, said. 
"She (Lebron) also brought officials over, and 
we trained them. Our department is somewhat 
involved with them in consulting and trying to 
help beef up their Rec Services. We've made 
recommendations and done whatever we can." 

With new rules and better officiating, 

Society of Manufacturing Engineers 

support for intramurals continued to grow, 
Lebron said. 

"Now the rules are different and having 
trained refs has affected the quality of our 
program," Lebron said. "The volunteers have 
showed support for the program with people 
giving up their time to officiate." 

It took many people to help reconstruct the 
intramural program, Lebron said. 

"This has evolved over time," she said. "This 
is only our second year, and the students have 
coordinated the program. They provided 
leadership, and we've had a very good 
response. Steve Martini did a very good job 
helping us learn the rules." 

The rejuvenation of intramural sports at K- 
State-Salina increased the number of athletes 
and spectators and lifted the pride level of the 
students, Lebron said. 

"It made the program more competitive and 
increased motivation," Lebron said. "The 
competition brings pride to our campus."

Evidence of the program's restructuring success showed Nov. 30 when 
the Purple Aces, the two-year Salina defending champions, played an 
exhibition football game against Manhattan's Naked Bootleggers at the Rec 
Complex. Although no one kept score during the game, everyone knew 
who won, sophomore in airway science and Purple Aces team captain Tom 
Karcz, said. 

"It was a lot of fun, we were just trying to compete," Karcz said. "We 
didn't keep score, but they whooped us. I thought we could have done 
better, but it was still fun." 

Karcz came up with the idea of the K-State-Salina champion playing 
the main campus intramural champion in 1998 because he said he wanted 
to compete with the flag football players from Manhattan. Students and 
staff implemented the idea in 1999. 

"I just thought that we (the Purple Aces) played really well," Karcz 
said. "I mean we killed teams, so I had the competitive edge. I just wanted 
another challenger, and I thought it'd be cool to play someone else and go 
up to Manhattan." 

As the program continued to grow, K-State-Salina and Rec Services 
considered having championship games for all the other sports both 
campuses offered. 

"If it's desired, we'd be more than happy to try and work it out," Martini 
said. "We'd be glad to host it and officiate it (the championship)." 

Intramurals offered at K-State-Salina included flag football, volleyball, 
basketball, a 3-on-3-basketball tournament and softball. 

"This is something else that can help both campuses get to know each 
other," Karcz said. "It is a step forward in the connection and communication 
in the campuses.

Silver Key increases homelessness awareness 


Huddled together, they slept under a cloud 
of mosquitoes and a starry sky Sept. 21. The 35 
Silver Key Honorary members organized their 
fifth-annual sleep out to benefit the Manhattan 
Emergency Shelter Inc. 

The group concentrated more on spreading 
the word about the sleep out, informing the pub- 
lic and getting out-of-town friends and family 
members to donate to the shelter, MESI Execu- 
tive Director Junell Norris said. 

Manhattan's mayor, Roger Reitz, issued a 
proclamation to formally announce the event 
and the sleep out project's objectives. 

"The goal of the group is to help students 
and the people of the residential community of 
Manhattan and to increase awareness of the 
City's homelessness and to generate support of 
the Manhattan Emergency Shelter by means of 
pledges, donations or time," Reitz's proclama- 
tion said. 

Sarah Grant, sophomore in agricultural eco- 
nomics, said Silver Key tried to change the 
public's perception of the sleep out. Silver Key 
had received complaints in the past about the 
group trying to look homeless, but she said the 
group really just wanted to increase awareness. 

"There are homeless people in Manhattan," 
she said. "There is a problem, and people need 
to know and help in any way that they can." 

Shane Holt, sophomore in agriculture jour- 
nalism, also said people complained about the 
group pretending to be homeless. 

"We're not here to be homeless," Holt said. 
"We're here to give up the luxuries we have for 
an evening." 

Silver Key collected donations from both 
homes and businesses. Some members walked 
door-to-door asking for donations while oth- 
ers set up tables outside local businesses. Some 
donors supplied food or other necessities in- 
stead of cash. Wendy's Old Fashioned 
Hamburger's donated food vouchers and Wild- 
cat Creek donated passes for mini-golf. Other 
donors included Wal-Mart, Varney's Book Store 
and McDonald's. 

Norris said she appreciated Silver Key's 
work. The sleepout helped the staff make pay- 
roll and generated more volunteers. 

"This might be one night for them," she said, 
"but it impacts us the rest of the semester." 

Carla Jones, Silver Key adviser, said the club 
raised more than $2,200 in cash and items. 

"It was a little lower than last year's $2,500, 
but it was a worthy effort," Jones said. "We are 
very proud of them." 

Eric Leahy, Silver Key president and sopho- 
more in electrical engineering, said Silver Key 
served many service projects throughout the 
year. They did a project once every month, he 
said, including highway litter clean up, Habi- 
tat for Humanity and Adopt- A-Family 

The first year Silver Key did the sleep out, 
Norris said the group slept on rain-soaked 
ground. The group slept in tents donated by 
Fort Riley one year due to rain, she said. This 
year, however, the weather conditions did not 
affect the group as much. 

"In years past they've had to contend with 
bugs, cold and rain," she said. "This year was 
the most pleasant year."

They needed a leader and Jan. 24, Harold 
Jagerson volunteered his time for the job. 

Adam Hayes, wrestling club president and 
sophomore in fine arts, founded the club in January 
1999. The 15-member club competed without a 
coach's support until Jagerson stepped forward the 
next year. 

"I've been around wrestling for 30 plus years," 
Jagerson said. "I had just resigned from my high 
school position as a coach. I couldn't miss the 
opportunity when this came up." 

Jagerson, 1984 Iowa State graduate and national 
freestyle wrestling champion, heard about the team's 
need for a coach when an article about them 
appeared in the Collegian. Jagerson contacted Hayes 
soon after. Jagerson said his experience with 
wrestling in college, the military and his seven years 
as the Chapman High School wrestling coach in 
Chapman, Kan., qualified him for the position. 

"He's nice and will help us a lot," Chris Warren, 
sophomore in agricultural business, said. "He has a 
military background and lots of discipline, which will 
help to get us nationally recognized." 

Jagerson said he wanted to increase funding for 
the team by getting more sponsors from the area but 
mostly hoped his help would allow the team to focus 
more on the sport. 

"I hope they can enjoy it without the 
administrative duties they have had to worry about," 
he said. "They can get back to how the sport used to 
be for them — what they really want." 

Both Jagerson and the team wanted to increase 
the team's numbers. 


After warm-ups, Harold Jagerson, wrestling club 
coach, instructs two wrestlers during a drill Feb. 
1 at Fort Riley Middle School. "I love to work 
with young people," Jagerson said, "and give 
what little I can back to the sport. I have heard 
this over and over and it's true. Wrestling is a 
unique sport in that whether you are playing or 
coaching, it is a family, and it's appreciated. I 
like to see and be involved and in contact with 
the sport." (Photo by Steven Dearinger) 




"We are recruiting at the high-school level," Jagerson 
said. "We want those guys who are wrestling right now 
and thinking about K-State to know that just because they 
come here they don't have to give up the sport. I don't 
expect our efforts to be instant — but see the results in a 
year or two." 

Hayes said he could tell a difference with a coach. He 
said he had difficulty getting some members to attend 
practice since Jagerson started because of the increased 
workload. Hayes also said they moved practices to Fort 
Riley Middle School, which meant team members had to 
travel 16 miles for their 7:30 p.m. daily practices. 

"Practices are harder," Hayes said. "We used to practice 
at the (Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex). Now we 
do real drills, and he pushes us. He helps us with 
conditioning and tells us what we are doing wrong." 

Despite the increased workout, some looked forward 
to working with Jagerson. 

"He is a down-to-earth guy," Warren said. "He has 
livened practice. I actually look forward to going. It's not 
like, 'Oh man, I have to go to practice again.' " 

The new coach helped focus their one and a half-hour 
practices, Warren said. 

"He really organized practice," he said. "He shows us 
what we are doing wrong and new techniques too. He 
prepares us mentally for the game. Sometimes we forget 
the basics. He has helped us go back to the basics which 
will help us figure our stuff out." 

Hayes said he felt less stressed with Jagerson's help. 
He liked the more intense pace in practices and hoped the 
change would help them place better at nationals in Dallas 
March 11 and 12. 

"His style is different," Hayes said. "We run drills and 
he really gets us going hard, then we stretch and go right 
into live wrestling. We have a leader who really knows 
his stuff. He works us harder, and the improvement will 
really show soon."

Middle School, Adam Hayes, sophomore in fine 
arts, executes a double-leg takedown against

In between juggling academics and daily practices, virtually 
all club, intramural and varsity athletes showed signs of success 
on the playing field. • The football team, faced with living up 
to last year's expectations and tuning up for the much- 
anticipated 2000 season, surprised fans and media alike by 
finishing the year with its highest ranking in school history 
As the Lacrosse Club celebrated its 1 0th year, it moved from 
the Great Plains Lacrosse League to the Central Collegiate 
Athletic Conference. The new league followed NCAA Division 
III rules, differing from the old, unorganized conference, which 
had no affiliation with the NCAA. • On the women's side, 
the volleyball team filled the gaps left by three 1 999 graduates 
and made their fourth consecutive trip to the NCAA 
Tournament. But the women failed to get past the second round 
of the Mountain Regional in Fort Collins, Colo. • Between the 
different teams' ups and downs, individual players achieved 
accomplishments as well. • Seniors Angie Finkes, Nicky 
Ramage, Dawn Cady and Mark Simoneau ended their 
collegiate careers at the top of their sport. Finkes and Ramage 
became the 24th and 25th players respectively in K-State 
women's basketball history to pass the 1 ,000-point mark. 
Cady became the first K-State volleyball player to receive 
All-America honors. Simoneau finished his football career 
as captain for the third-straight season and a finalist for the 
Butkus award, given annually to the best linebacker in the 
country. • In between on-field achievements and off-field 
struggles, athletes and coaches lived up to old standards and 
left a mark of their own.

Construction delays 

leave players homeless 

It was appropriately dubbed the 
year of the 56-game road trip. 

With renovations to Frank Myers 
Field delayed, the Wildcats played the 
entire 1999 season without a true home 

"We had the odds against us from 
the start," junior third baseman Travis 
Andre said. 

Coupled with one of the toughest 
schedules in team history, head coach 
Mike Clark said being without a home 
field made for an even tougher season. 

Clark added that while his team 
played under difficult circumstances, 
the players still gave their complete 

"It was a handicap to us," he said. 
"It was tough, yet the guys didn't use 
it as an excuse. They say that if you can 
play .500 ball on the road, you've got a 
good ball club." 

The Cats finished the season just 
under .500 with a 26-29 overall record, 
11-18 in conference action. Oklahoma 
finished a half game ahead of K-State, 
dropping the Cats to ninth place in the 

Big 12, while the Sooners captured the 
final spot in the eight-team conference 

The fight for a berth in the 
tournament came down to the final 

After taking two of three games from 
Missouri, the Cats traveled to Lincoln, 
Neb., one victory away from eighth 

"We went into Nebraska able to 
control our own destiny," Andre said. 
"It's always better when you control 
your own outcome." 

But the Cats fell short. 

In the first game of the series, the 
Cats and the Huskers battled it out 
through the final inning, with Nebraska 
coming out on top 5-4. Nebraska 
completed the sweep, downing K-State 
12-4 and 21-16, and robbing the Cats of 
a berth in the Big 12 tournament. 

"It was a let down," junior second 
baseman Chad Tabor said. "We knew 
we needed to win at least one game to 
have a legitimate shot."

Weishaar said there was an air of 

"Seeing all of the seniors' faces after 
that loss was heartbreaking/' he said. 

Weishaar finished the season with a 
.429 batting average, the second highest 
in the conference, earning himself first 
team all-Big 12 honors, while Tabor was 
named honorable mention, with his 
.335 average. 

K-State's pitching staff was led by 
senior starter Derek Andersen who 
finished the season with a 6-8 record 
and a 6.08 ERA. 

Clark said the team put forth great 

"Their will to win was so strong," 
he said. "The guys just refused to lose.

They gave all out 100-percent effort." 

Freshman starter Brett Reid said he 
thought things would have ended 
much differently if his team had played 
their entire season as well as they did 
at the end. 

"At the beginning of the year we 
were looking for someone to lead the 
team," he said. "We started out slow, 
and it took a little bit to start meshing." 

Clark said the majority of returning 
players spent the summer honing their 
skills in semi-professional leagues, and 
the recruits looked strong. 

"We're optimistic," he said, "but we 
have to replace eight senior pitchers. 
We're returning three or four infielders. 
That's a good nucleus to build from."

new runners, improved veterans 


as they finish fifth at nationals 

Only three days away from Thanksgiving, 
the women's cross country team had a lot to 
be thankful for, especially good running. 
That running helped them finish fifth at the 
NCAA Championships Nov. 22 in 
Bloomington, Ind. 

Junior Korene Hinds led the team to its 
highest finish in school history with a 16:58.6 
lOth-place finish. Freshman Amy Mortimer 
came in 1.2 seconds later in 12th place. 

"I knew we had to get out into position 
and into the lead pack," Hinds said. 
"Everyone was charging out from the start. 
Around 3K I was able to make my move, and 
I felt comfortable. I saw others slowing 
down, and I just kept going." 

Junior Annie Wetterhus and sophomore 
Amanda Crouse finished the race 39th and 
68th respectively to round out the top 100 
for K-State. 

"This is such a great accomplishment for 
this group," head coach Randy Cole said. 
"We got out patiently but aggressively and 
that was key in a meet of this size." 

The women stuck together which helped 
them out in the long run, Wetterhus said. 

"It was important for us to stay together. 
It's important to be there for your team and 
help them out," she said. 

The women came into the race with a 
goal in mind and finished the race with that 

goal accomplished, Wetterhus said. 

"We all believed we could have a top-five 
finish, and we did it," she said. "I'm so happy 
It's amazing how far this program has come 
since I was a freshman. It says a lot about our 
heart, program and team." 

Nine days before the race, Nov. 13, the 
team won the NCAA Midwest Regional 
Championship for the second year in a row. 

Mortimer, the Big 12 Newcomer of the 
Year, paced the team with a 16:59 first-place 
finish in the 5,000-meter race. She joined 
Hinds, Wetterhus and Crouse to receive all- 
region honors. 

The team finished second Oct. 30 at the 
Big 12 Championship, just 15 points shy of 
first-place Colorado. 

"I thought we ran very aggressively," Cole 
said. "We had some very strong finishes, 
passing several down the last half mile. A 
great conference race this year. We had a 
better team (than last year), but it is also a 
better conference." 

With five of the seven Big 12 schools 
finishing in the top 25 at the NC A As, the Cats 
had to stick to their plan which paid off in 
the end. 

"We executed our race plan well," Cole 
said. "The last 2,000 meters, the girls were 
really charging. Amy and Korene moved up 
from about 20th in that last 2K."

due to injuries, inexperience 


team only sends one to NCAAs 

During the regular season, practice became 
more than hard work for the men's cross 
country team. It also became educational 
when the team used their seven-day, 70- 
miles-a-week worth of running time to learn 
as well as train. 

"We quizzed each other on Trivial 
Pursuit," sophomore Martin Boos said. 
"That's how I learned that Jimmy Angel 
discovered Angel Falls in Venezuela, the 
highest waterfall in the world." 

Team members memorized facts and 
then quizzed each other during practice. It 
all started one practice when junior Brian 
Ismert started telling the team random facts 
as they ran. 

One fact the team knew was that their 
ninth-place finish at the Big 12 
Championship Oct. 30 in College Station, 
Texas, although not what they hoped for, 
gave them a good season, senior Michael 
Beachler said. 

Juniors Brandon Jessop and Jean-Paul 
Niyongabo led the team with seventh and 
lOth-place finishes respectively at the event. 

Because injuries kept Jessop from starting 
the season on time and took sophomore Keil 

Regehr out, the season did not turn out like 
the team had wanted, Beachler said. 

"We had a lot more potential than we 
showed," Ismert said. "We had a couple of 
bumps along the road with some injuries and 
tough races. But I think that our front 
runners, Brandon and Jean-Paul, were two 
big pluses for the team this year." 

Even though some runners said the team 
fell a little short of their goals by not 
qualifying for the Nov. 22 NCAA 
Championship, Niyongabo individually 

"He probably got out a little tentatively," 
Coach Randy Cole said of Niyongabo's 
performance. "He wanted to move up 
around 3K, but he just couldn't in this field. 
You have to be big-time aggressive in this 
meet. It was a good experience for him." 

With a time of 32:07.4 Niyongabo finished 
the 10,000-meter race in 105th place out of 
234 runners 

"It was a fast field from the beginning, 
and I was not able to move out," Niyongabo 
said. "I moved up a little around 8K and 
passed a few who started too fast, but it was 
just too late."

women strive to obtain 


status, off-season carries new hope 

The eight members of the women's golf team 
strived to achieve a first. 

Not a first-place finish, but a first in K-State's 
women's golf. They wanted to finish in the 
conference's top half. 

Although more than half the team consisted 
of returning members, the women had a rocky 
spring season and were ready to move ahead 
junior Carrie Chambers said. 

"I would say that it was a hard season for 
everybody," Chambers said. "Nobody played 
as well as they could have. It was a learning 
season for everyone on the team. We kind of 
took it as a building season to bring in the fall." 

Plagued with shoulder injuries and three 
last place finishes for the spring season, the 
women looked forward to the fall. 

"I like our chances this year to have the best 
conference championship performance by a K- 
State women's golf team," third-year head 
coach Kristi Knight said. "The potential is there 
to play well. It is just a matter of five players 
executing in the same round." 

The fall season helped set the tone for the 
2000 season, Knight said. Finishing eighth in 
the Big 12 Fall Preview in Lincoln, Neb., the 
team showed great improvement and potential 
to do well in its conference tournament. 

"I definitely think the team that we have 
is getting more consistent," sophomore Edie 
Murdoch said. "We are shooting lower scores 
and our bad rounds are getting better and 
are making the team as a whole more 

Without one player stepping up to take 
charge, the fall season was a group effort, 
Knight said. 

"I think the team has been evenly 
distributed," Murdoch said. "I think all of 
us have had one good tournament. I don't 
think it's been one person leading the team. 
It's been a team effort." 

Finishing 16th at the last meet of the fall 
season, the Diet Coke Roadrunner 
Invitational in Las Cruces, N.M., the team 
knew they could have played better and 
would be working hard during the winter 
break to prepare for the spring season and 
conference tournament, being held in 
Lubbock, Texas. 

"All players on the team are great 
players," freshman Elise Carpentier said. "I 
think it's just a question of time. We cannot 
force results to happen, we can only do 
everything possible to give those results a 
chance to happen." 


Attempting to sink the put, sophomore Edie 
Murdoch practices on the green at Wildcat 
Creek. "We could have done a little better," 
Murdoch said. "But working out in the off- 
season will help us get better prepared for the 
spring season." (Photo by Justin Hayworth)

situations beyond team's 


cause short-of-expectation results 

The K-State men's golf team had a rough fall 
season plagued by injuries and illness. 

Many uncontrollable circumstances led 
to a disappointing season, head coach Tim 
Norris said. 

"Obviously we were not up to the 
expectations I set initially," he said. "A lot of 
factors were outside of our control. 

"Bryan Schweizer will be medical 
redshirted; I thought he would add a lot. 
Mark Sears was sick at one tournament and 
Todd (Rodemich) had a bad back at KU. The 
excuses go on and on." 

The Wildcats participated in five 
tournaments and traveled throughout the 

At the team's first tournament in 
Laramie, Wyo., Sept. 6 and 7, they finished 
10th out of 14 teams. Sears, senior, got sick 
during the tournament and finished last for 
the team while junior Dan Demory stepped 
up his performance and tied for 23rd place 
with a score of 215. 

"We were kind of shorthanded because 
Mark got the flu," sophomore Bryan 
Milberger said. "Mark couldn't play very 
well because of the flu, but we could've 
performed better." 

The Kansas Invitational in Lawrence 
came next for the Wildcats. Freshmen Todd 
Rodemich and Schweizer both suffered 
injuries. Rodemich hurt his back and 
Schweizer sprained his wrist in the last 

In Illinois, after the KU Invitational, the 
Wildcats ended September with their best 
performance. The team finished sixth and 
Sears turned in a top-10 effort, tying for sixth 

place with a score of 220. 

The team had two weeks off before the 
Oct. 11 Purina Challenge in St. Charles, Mo. 

"When you get up at 6 a.m. to play 14 
hours of golf, it can start to wear on you," 
Demory said. "I think the team could use a 
mental break, I know I could." 

But the break didn't help too much as the 
team finished last, in 17th place. 

"We didn't play very good," Norris said, 
"That's the bottom line. We were off to a bad 
start and our two rounds were not too good, 
but we competed. But any thoughts of a finish 
in the middle of the field were gone after the 
first round." 

The fall season's last tournament, Oct. 25 
and 26 in Waco, Texas, started out strong for 
the Wildcats and after the first round, they 
were in fifth place. After the second round 
the Wildcats slipped to 11th place and then 
finished 14th out of 16 teams. 

"We really had a good first round," Norris 
said. "The last two rounds didn't go quite the 
way we wanted, but off we go. Go forward 
and keep improving." 

The 1999 spring season ended with a 1 Out- 
place finish at the Big 12 Championship. They 
were in 11th place at the end of the first day 
and then proceeded the next day to move 
ahead of Texas Tech and Missouri. Milberger 
led the team and tied for 36th place with a 
total of 226. 

Norris said the Big 12 tournament was an 
improvement on the year before. 

"Last season we finished in 12th and were 
still 20 strokes out of 11th," he said. "We 
weren't where we wanted to be, but we're 
still happy that we made the improvement."

Team enters 10th season, 

exits old conference 

Ruptured spleens, broken bones and 
bruises of various colors punctuated the 
injury list, yet club members still called 
lacrosse the fastest 
sport on two feet. 

Despite a decade 
of pain and injuries, 
the lacrosse club 
celebrated its 10th 
anniversary this 

"A lot has 
changed in la- 
crosse," Jay Sweet, 
club coach and 
president, said. "It 
has grown a lot in 
the Midwest. In the 
past 10 years, St. 
Louis has gone 
from having two teams to now having 
over 20 high school teams." 

The men left their old conference, the 
Great Plains Lacrosse League, to join the 
Central Collegiate Lacrosse Association. 
The new league followed NCAA Divi- 
sion III rules, which Sweet said had ben- 
efits the old league did not. 

"On Kansas City's sideline, (a team 
in the old league) there are always two 
kegs of beer," Sweet said. "They never 
have water. As a coach, I don't condone 
that. My players are mostly under 21, 
and that is not the image of lacrosse that 

mm It will be good 
leaving this league 
and playing on a 
more professional 
college level. ••

ing this league and playing on a more 
professional college level." 

Playing at a col- 
lege level and abid- 
ing by college rules 
restricted Sweet's 
play. He lost his eli- 
gibility when the 
team moved to the 
new league because 
he had been a pio- 
neer member since 
the group's found- 
ing in 1990. 

But he did play 
in the Alumni Game 
Sept. 6. The team 
lost to the alumni 
11-10 in a close 

"It was an intense game," Chris 
Howell, captain and senior, said. "We 
went into double-overtime. I was sur- 
prised at the level of play. I thought it 
was just going to be laid back, but they 
came out to win, and they did. Some of 
them (alumni) are members of teams 
from around the country, but I was 
pretty happy with the whole deal."

"We played pretty well," Sweet 
said. "We could have played a lot bet- 
ter. We are a young team. The experi- 
ence of all six of our offensive players 
combined didn't equal the experience 
of one Team Pepsi defensive player." 

The new league brought the team a 
more organized and structured sched- 
ule with more teams from across the na- 
tion on it. 

"It's going to be different because 
of them giving us a schedule and we'll 
have more teams to play," Kevin 
Kloesch junior and midfielder said. 

continued from page 242 

"There's a lot more organization to it. 
This is more of a college league, the last 
league was more of just who can we 
get to play and we played more local 
teams like Kansas City and Wichita." 

Ten of the 13 teams in the new 
league were located in the Great Lakes 
region of the country. Not only did that 
mean more and better competition, it 
also meant more expense for the play- 
ers and team. 

"We do fund-raisers and other stuff 
to try and raise money," Sweet said. 
"Aside from the money, it will take 
more commitment from the players 
because our season will start earlier and 
finish later. It's more commitment, but 
we are ready."

92-0 over Pumps and Trucks to advance to the semifinals. (Photo by Steven Dearinger) 

The Pink Tacos took the field without any team practices under 
their flagged belts. Still, they managed to snag their third co- 
recreational championship in five years. 

Since originating in 1995, the Pink Tacos intramural football team 
never lost a regular season game and never 
placed lower than second in the co-rec division. 
"They have had quite a successful stint in 
the co-rec division," Steve Martini, intramural 
director, said. "Any team that competes in 
intramurals in repeated years is formed from 
a group that enjoys playing together. They 
obviously do and are successful." 

The season began Sept. 2, with a strong 
start. Their first game, against Morehead State, 
set the stage for the rest of the year when the 
Tacos won 28-0. The Taco's defense did not give 
up any points in regular season play. The team, 
consisting of nine men and six women, 
finished league play with a 5-0 record. 

The Tacos continued their winning streak 
throughout the post-season. After a win by 
forfeit and two other play-off victories, the 
team defeated rivals Morehead State in the 
championship game by a score of 33-0. 

"It was expected, but we were kind of 

nervous about it because we saw how bad they 

wanted to win," Jessica McPeake, senior and 

quarterback, said. "When you play your rivals, 

it's always an exciting game." 

Intramural football co-rec teams required a minimum of seven 

players, with at least three women. The first completed pass on a set 

of downs had to include a female. A touchdown meant six points if 

a man scored, and nine if scored by a woman. 

"I like it because our team tries to get the ball to girls to score," 
McPeake said. "But, in co-ed, girls should be the same. I'm just as 
good of an athlete." 

As many victories as the Tacos had, they also met their goal of 
enjoying the game. 

"Our focus is just having a good time and winning," Andy 
Beckman, senior and team captain, said. "It's one of the funnest times 
I have had at K-State."

Without a coach, 

women struggle to unite 

• • I think the team 
goal is to be more 
like a unit, like a 


club president 

The 45 members of the women's 
club soccer team faced as many battles 
off the field as on. 

"Our goal would be to get funding 
by the school," 
senior Nicki 
Werkowitch said, 
"so that we can 
get a coach and 
become varsity." 

As members of 
the only women's 
soccer team in the 
Big 12 without 
varsity status, the 
seniors hoped 
freshmen would 
eventually gain a 
coach's guidance 
before leaving K- 

"If you have a coach, he tells you you 
have to do it his way or the highway," 
freshman Kara Odneal said. "Just like 
Bill Snyder tells his team they will do it 
his way or not at all." 

Without a coach the team found it 
hard to get players to attend practices 
and try their hardest, Odneal said. 

"Our team is screaming, 'we need 
someone to coach us because we are not 
doing well,'" Odneal said. "If we had 
a coach he would be like, 'If you don't 
put 110 percent into practice, you don't 
deserve to play.'" 

It was hard for Amanda Sweeten, 
club president and team member, to 
make the players realize the dedication 
needed to have a successful season. 

"You can't coach and be on the 
team," Werkowitch said. "As a team 
you have to be united, but you can't be 

united if someone's bossing you 

Without a coach requiring all 
women to attend practices, developing 
team chemistry was 
hard. The game 
against the Univer- 
sity of Kansas Sept. 
25 proved they did 
not play well with 
each other. The 
team was full of in- 
girls, but they 
couldn't anticipate 
each other, fresh- 
man Megan Kelly 

"KU was defi- 
nitely a wake-up 
call," she said. "We 
had played Manhattan Christian Col- 
lege and totally dominated, and then 
we were dominated by KU." 

After their defeat by KU, the girls 
knew they needed funding for a coach 
to help them step up their training. 
Werkowitch said she felt they had talent 
to play more competitively. 

"They're competitive girls," 
Werkowitch said. "We just don't have 
the funding to pay for a coach." 

Team members hoped the team 
would have enough women to hold 
together through the school year. 

"We always have problems in the 
spring semester because it's so cold for 
so long that we can't get outside and 
practice as much," Sweeten said. "I 
think the team goal is to be more like a 
unit, like a group, instead of the little 
cliques that tend to form in any group."

The women's outdoor track team won every regular season team meet it 
participated in. The women also finished third in the Big 12 Conference meet 
and 24th in the NCAA Championship meet. 

By the time the season ended, K-State finished 27th in the United States Track 
Coaches Association Power Rankings. 

Senior Renetta Seiler ended her career finishing eighth in the hammer throw 
at the USA Senior Outdoor Championships and third in the hammer at the 
NCAAs. Seller's first of three tosses at the meet would have won the title for her, 
but the 210-foot throw went out of bounds. 

"If I had made that first throw," Seiler, three-time Big 12 hammer throw 
champion, said, "it would have set me up at a new level." 

The 203-foot-3-inch, third-place finish ended Seller's decorated college career, 
head coach and Midwest Region Women's Coach of the Year Cliff Rovelto said. 

"She had a great career," Rovelto said. "She threw well at a high level across 
the board. You look at someone at the end of their career and you say 'should've 
and could've' but not with her. She did everything." 

men's outdoor track and field 

By the time the outdoor track season ended, the men's team had finished in 
the conference's bottom half but in the nation's top half. 

The team's performance at the NCAA Championships, in which two athletes 
finished in the top 10, earned the team a 24th-place finish in the meet. 

Juniors Attila Zsivoczky and Jason Williams finished second and seventh 
respectively in the decathlon at the NCAA meet, earning both athletes All- 
American status. 

"It was actually a frustrating season because I had a lot of injuries," Williams 
said. "I didn't perform like I should. At nationals I was fourth going into the last 
event, and I basically limped to the finish line. I know I could have done a lot 
better, but that just makes me more hungry for next year." 

At the Big 12 Championship May 23 in Waco, Texas, the Wildcats finished the 
meet in eighth place. Although no one performed well enough to be on the All- 
Big 12 team, nine members earned Academic All-Big 12 status. 

While he tried to mold the most balanced team, head coach Cliff Rovelto said 
track scholarship restraints made it difficult. 

"I think that we tried to have as complete a team as possible," Rovelto said. 
"But with 12.6 scholarships for cross country, indoor track and outdoor track, 
it's just ridiculous to do."

As the 2000 Summer Olympics approach, hundreds of the finest 
athletes on the planet will travels to Sydney, Australia to turn their 
dreams into reality or dream on for another four years. Two of those 
dreamers are seniors Attila Zsivoczky and Renetta Seiler. 

Zsivoczky, a decathlete, has already been granted a spot on the 
Hungarian team. He automatically earned it after winning the 
decathlon at the European Under-23 Championships by 564 points. 

"I'm going to be 23 at the Olympics," he said. "That is a young 
age to be good in the decathlon, so there is not much pressure. I 
don't have to worry about anything." 

Zsivoczky said the best part of his event was the atmosphere. 

"I really like the environment," he said. "Because no matter how 
much pressure, we (decathlon competitors) always try to help each 
other out." 

Zsivoczky was not looking to break any world records or end 
up on the podium with a medal around his neck. He wanted to break 
his 8,379-point personal record, the second highest decathlon point 
total in NCAA history, by more than 150 points. 

"That would be nice," he said. "I just want to score my best and 
wherever that lands me, I'll be happy." 

The journey to K-State and to the Olympics differed for Seiler. 
The Algona, Iowa, native finished her fourth year of eligibility last 
year and stayed in Manhattan to continue her education and work 
with coaches to refine her throw. 

Her first test will be July's Olympic Trials in Sacramento, Calif., 
where the top three finishers automatically make the U.S. team. 

The hammer throw will premiere at the 2000 games, and with 
proper training, Seiler could make a debut of her own. 

"I could do it if I train hard enough," she said. "If everything 
goes right, I need to be throwing 220 (feet). I've thrown 209 before, 
so I need to get intense training and be prepared that everyone will 
be improving." 

Head coach Cliff Rovelto had high hopes for Seiler at the trials. 

"Renetta is capable of making the team," Rovelto said. "She is 
considered in the top five or six in the U.S. I don't know if there is 
anyone who is truly ahead of everyone else. She most definitely will 
be in the finals, and she is certainly capable of being in the top three." 

No matter what the outcome, both athletes said they would be 
pleased to participate in the 2T 1 Century's first Olympiad. 

"There are only a select few who get to do this," Seiler said. "There 
are people in other countries who don't work or do anything. They 
spend all their time training for this. I'll be happy just to qualify and 
be there with all the elite athletes and be able to say T was there.' "

said. "I wanted to study business and K-State has a good business school. I'm a 
decathlete, and K-State had good decathletes like Steve Fritz." Fritz finished fourth

improvement evident as team 


back with successful fall season 

Showing signs of improvement, the fall 
tennis squad worked to better their spring 

The Wildcats, after a 5-18 record last 
spring, started the fall season looking for 
improvement. In the first tournament, K- 
State found needed consistency in freshman 
Alena Jecminkova. 

Jecminkova won singles titles in both the 
Tulsa Hurricane Invitational and the Indiana 
Hoosier Classic. She also paired with senior 
All-Big 12 performer Anna Pampoulova to 
win the consolation doubles championship 
in Indiana as well as tie for second in the 
Wildcat Doubles Invitational. 

"I think that this year Alena started off 
pretty strong," Pampoulova said. "She's a 
very talented player." 

In post-season play, Jecminkova and 
freshman Petra Sedlmajerova both advanced 
to singles draw third round play at the 
Intercollegiate Tennis Association Rolex 
Regional Championships in Salt Lake City, 
Nov. 4-7. Jecminkova finished the fall season 
with a team-leading singles record of 8-1. 

The doubles team of Jecminkova and 
Pampoulova also advanced to the round of 
16 in regional play at the Eccles Tennis 

Ankle surgery and back problems 
sidelined Jecminkova, a native of Libusina, 
Czech Republic, during much of 1998-99. 

Injuries had a negative effect on the team's 
spring performance. 

With the team starting to improve, the 
signs of progress became evident in the fall. 

"Our goal is to use our performance in 
the fall as a standard," head coach Steve 
Bietau said. "Our health, as well as our 
leadership, is definitely improving. We're just 
going over the basics of what the team knows 
about playing good tennis and learning to 
compete as a team. There's been a significant 
amount of progress this fall." 

Junior Eva Novotna, Pardubice, Czech 
Republic, said she felt changes in practices 
helped the team tremendously. 

"We have a whole new system," she said. 
"We're practicing completely different. Even 
the team atmosphere is different. The whole 
team is on the same level." 

Bietau said talk started about a rebuilding 
season in 1999 before the fall campaign 

"We talked about that for a while before 
the fall season," he said. "We have certainly 
improved to the point that it's not appro- 
priate to use last spring as a standard. A 
great deal of progress has been made. " 

Pampoulova agreed that everything 
started to come together for the Wildcats in 
the fall. 

"It's working out a lot better for us," she 
said. "We're much more focused.

Things really can't compare to last year." 

The Wildcats prepared to take that next step forward. Although 
the team had no seniors for the second straight year, Bietau said 
many young players had already started maturing to their 

Pampoulova, Novotna and Natalia Farmer were the squad's 
only juniors. 

Jecminkova led the up-and-coming sophomore class, including 
Katy Chuda and Vesselina Jeliaskova. 

Sedlmajerova was the Wildcats' lone newcomer this fall. 

"I think she's going to be a pretty good tennis player when 
she gains some more experience," Jecminkova said.

Powerful defense, volatile 

offense guide team 




While walking down the bleachers 
during Fan Appreciation Day Aug. 27, 
echoes of, "No number seven/' and 
"Where's Michael?" could be heard 

\ throughout the crowd. 
I No one knew 

jMjjjjgm how the football 
season would turn 
out in early 
August. Head 
coach Bill 
Snyder and 
his staff 
had to prove 
to the 

~ & country the 
team was 
not a one-hit 
wonder, and last 
year's undefeated 
regular season did not 
happen by accident. 
The sixth-ranked 
Cats, shunned by the 
* Bowl Championship 
Series for the second year 
in a row, ended their season 
Dec. 29 with a 24-20 victory 
over the University of 
Washington at the Culligan 
Holiday Bowl in San 
"They are an as- 
advertised football team," 
Washington coach Rick Neuheisel 
said. "They have great team speed, a 
bevy of talented players and they're 

certainly well-coached. They were 10- 
1 for a reason." 

After sailing past Temple and the 
University of Texas El Paso to start the 
season, K-State had its first challenge 
in the Big 12 opener at Iowa State 
University Sept. 25. Trailing 28-7 at half 
time, senior quarterback Adam Helm 
replaced junior Jonathan Beasley early 
in the second half to engineer the 
biggest comeback in the Snyder era 
with a 35-28 victory. 

"We got our heads back on (at half 
time)," junior Jarrod Cooper said. "We 
looked at each other and said, 'Hey let's 
get it done.' I underestimated them." 

Helm's performance at Iowa State 
gave him the nod to make his first 
career start as the Cats visited Texas the 
following week. 

After the 35-17 victory, K-State 
returned to Manhattan for the 97th 
annual Sunflower State Showdown 
against the University of Kansas. 
Dominating the Jayhawks 50-9, many 
fans and media alike wondered if the 
game could any longer be considered 
a rivalry. 

"If you ask the players you might 
get conflicting reports, but for me it's 
always been a tremendous ball game," 
Snyder said. "For me, what makes it 
maybe even more special than other 
ball games is the fact that it means so 
much to the people of Kansas. It's a 
great game for us, and it's a great game 
for this state."

one loss. 

The then sixth-ranked team in the 
country went on to beat its next three 
opponents before facing the University 
of Colorado Nov. 6. 

After senior Adrian Beard blocked 
a punt to give K-State the go-ahead 
score late in the first half, he recovered 
a third quarter Colorado fumble on a 
fake punt. The Buffs scored twice in the 
fourth quarter, only the third time all 
season a team scored a second-half 
touchdown. But K-State kept the lead 
and won the game 20-14. 

Players like Beard and junior Brice 
Libel, who helped set up the punt 
blocks, made K-State football more 
special, Snyder said. 

"I love those guys. They take such 
pride in doing that," Snyder said. 
"Adrian doesn't get on the field a 
whole lot. Brice doesn't take the field a 
whole lot. It's guys like that who give 
you a chance. They show up big when 
the time comes." 

The following Saturday, Nov. 13, the 
Cats perhaps played the game-of-the- 
year. They traveled to Nebraska to 
battle the then sixth-ranked 
Cornhuskers. The game meant a trip 
to the Big 12 Championship and 
possibly a Bowl Championship Series 
game for the winner. But quarterback 
Eric Crouch's 158 rushing yards helped 
the Huskers beat K-State, 41-15. 

continued from page 263 

"I know that there is pain in our 
locker room, and there is pain with our 
players, and there is pain with our 
coaches, and that's to be expected, but 
we're still in our season," Snyder said. 
"We just don't want to let happen to us 
what happened a year ago. We let the 
loss in St. Louis get us beat in San 

The loss almost wiped out any 
possibility of a BCS bowl and denied 
the Cats of a berth in the Big 12 
Championship game. 

But the team did not let the loss 
distract it. A week later, K-State romped 
the Missouri Tigers 66-0 in the seniors' 
final home game. 

After the victory, the Wildcats ran a 
victory lap around Wagner Field 
paying homage, giving high-fives, 
talking and signing autographs for the 
K-State faithful who supported the 
team through its ups and downs, at 
home and away. 

"These guys (seniors) have lost one 
home game in their five-year career at 
K-State," first-year defensive 
coordinator Phil Bennett said. "These 
kids have character. I've told them all 
year, 'It's a players game.' It's easy to 
coach good players, and these kids 
have responded in everything that 
we've asked them to do. I've just 
enjoyed the ride."

the drive. . . 

Only two football teams in the 
country have won 11 or more football 
games per season in the past three 
years. One of those teams, Florida State 
University won 2000's national title. 
The other team, K-State's Wildcats 
hoped the first college football 
championship of the 21st century 
would be theirs at next year's FedEx 
Orange Bowl in Miami. 

Speaking at a pre-bowl game pep 
rally in San Diego, head coach Bill 
Snyder said 1999's final football game 
for the Cats, the Culligan Holiday 
Bowl, would be the springboard for 
next year's season. 

"With our underclassmen I think 
there's been a lot said about setting the 
stage for the year 2000," he said. "I 
think this is important for them, and 

continued from page 270 

they're excited about — not next year 
at this point in time — but setting the 
stage because it relates to what takes 
place tonight." 

K-State won the game, 24-20, over 
the unranked University of 
Washington Huskies. Junior Jonathan 
Beasley directed a 9:54 minute, 92-yard 
drive that ultimately put seven points 
on the board and gave the Cats the lead 
and the eventual win. 

On a second and goal, Beasley who 
had been playing with an injured 
shoulder since the Baylor game Oct. 30, 
went audible on the final play of the 
drive. He rushed to the right, and ran 
in for a one yard touchdown, his third 
of the game.

of 1999 graduate Michael Bishop, threw 
for 216 yards with 48-percent accuracy 
and rushed for 48 yards. For his efforts, 
Beasley received the Offensive Player 
of the Game award. 

But, the sixth-ranked Cats played a 
far-from-stellar game, Snyder said. 

"This is not one of our finest hours 
in regard to how well we played the 
ballgame," Snyder, who is now 4-3 in 
bowl games, said. "We'll take the win, 
but our players are not jumping up and 
down, because we realize that we really 
didn't play that well." 

Players echoed the same emotions 
as their coach in the K-State locker 

"We were excited," senior Mark 
Simoneau said. "But our victory was 
not as much excitement as you would 
think. They played a tough game 
against us." 

Senior Darren Howard, part of the 
nucleus anchoring the second-best 
defense in the country and Defensive 
Player of the Game had nine-tackles 
and three-sacks during the game.

First year defensive coordinator Phil 
Bennett's defense also ranked first 
nationally in pass effeciency defense 
and turnover margin and fourth in 
scoring defense. In rushing defense, the 
Cats were ranked 22nd. 

The Cats' swarmed Washington 
quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo, 
ranked 23rd in the country in total 
offense coming into the game, all night. 
They sacked him four times and held 
him to just 30 yards rushing and 197 
yards passing. 

"It was one of the best defenses I've 
seen at the collegiate level," Neuheisel 
said. "If you threw a grenade out there, 
you'd get all of them because they are 
all so close to the ball." 

Although no one expected a high 
turnout at the game, about 12,000 loyal 
K-Staters showed up for the 1,230-mile 
journey to the Golden State. 

"For those of you who made it here 
to California, it's just a great sight to see 
all this purple out here," senior Lamar 
Chapman said. "I know we've been 
through a lot this season, but you fans 
have always been there."

perimeter shooting, defense 


through up-and-down season 

The women's basketball team's season did 
not go as planned. They fought injuries and 
youth to compile a 13-16 overall record. 

Despite losing 16 games and not 
receiving an invitation to play in a post- 
season tournament, K-State still had 
impressive victories. The Cats' most 
important performance in the season may 
have been against Iowa State Feb. 13. 

The women's basketball team had led 
eighth-ranked Iowa State almost the entire 
game in front of 3,611 K-State fans when the 
Cyclones took the lead, their first since the 
first basket of the game, with 4:35 remaining 
in the contest. Until that point, the Wildcats 
had struggled to finish games successfully, 
losing four of their last six games as the clock 
ticked down to zero. This time, however, 
things would be different as the Cats pulled 
out the 69-63 victory. 

"I am truly ecstatic for this team," head 
coach Deb Patterson said. "I felt as though 
they truly did put together a 40-minute 
game, and there's no better feeling when you 
walk off the floor knowing you answered 
every challenge the game presented to you." 

The Iowa State game proved to be the 
turning point in the Wildcats' season. 
Entering the game, K-State had just broken 
a five-game losing streak with a win at 
Oklahoma State. 

The team started out the season 9-8 with 
runs of wins and losses, but during the losing 
streak, they struggled with ball handling, 
perimeter shooting and closing games. 

Senior forwards Nicky Ramage and 
Angie Finkes played consistently well, but 
no other player stepped up, Patterson said. 

So she changed the line-up five times during 
the streak. 

"I felt like we had to make some sort of a 
change if we were really doing our job 
because we weren't taking positive steps 
forward," Patterson said. "We were sort of 
stuck where we were at." 

With their 71-64 win at Oklahoma State 
Feb. 9, K-State got back on track, and the 
resulting relief set up their momentum- 
changing win against Iowa State, Finkes said. 

"I can remember the last thing was 
(when) the buzzer went off, and Nicky and I 
looked at each other and were like, 'finally,'" 
Finkes said. "It felt so good to win. It was 
almost like we'd forgotten what it felt like to 
win, because we had lost so many times." 

After Iowa State, the Wildcats finished 
the season with a 2-2 conference run, with 
the two losses coming to nationally ranked 
University of Kansas, 63-41, and the 
University of Oklahoma, to which K-State 
lost 64-56. K-State ended its regular season 
March 1 with Senior Night at Bramlage 
Coliseum against the University of Colorado. 

Seniors Finkes, Ramage, center Olga 
Firsova and guard Jenny Coalson made the 
most of their final game beating the Buffaloes 
64-47. Finkes' game-high 22-point, 10- 
rebound performance proved to be her best 
of the season. The night, however, belonged 
to Coalson, who played just two minutes. 

Coalson had not played since Dec. 18 
when a femoral stress fracture during the 
Wichita State game put an early end to her 
senior campaign. The loss of Coalson put a 
crimp in the Cats' offensive game plans, 
Patterson said.

"She was our best perimeter defender, our 
most experienced guard, and she could 
rebound for us," Patterson said. "In losing 
Jenny, you lost that different dimension on the 
perimeter - that different sort of a guard. It's 
put greater pressure on players and exploited 
some of their weaknesses." 

In Coalson's absence K-State depended on 
guard Kristin Rethman, who hit 69 three- 
pointers during the season, but lacked 
Coalson's quickness, Patterson said. 

"It's the nature of our guards' strengths 
that they're great shooters but not real adept 
at being able to blow by somebody" she said. 
"So even if you have an adequate handle, if 
you don't have the quicks to go by somebody, 
you can struggle." 

Against the Buffaloes, however, Coalson 
had two more minutes of glory and, despite 
not playing for more than a month and a half, 

scored a basket. The emotional rush from those 
two minutes was overwhelming, Coalson said. 

"I think it was awesome," a speechless 
Coalson said as tears streamed down her face. 

Ramage agreed that Coalson showed just 
what the Cats had been missing. 

"For Jenny to come out there after not 
playing the whole Big 12 season and make that 
shot — it was tremendous," Ramage said. 

For the senior class, the Colorado game 
culminated four years of work that included 
the program's first NCAA tournament 
appearance since 1987 in 1996. Those four 
years will not be forgotten, Patterson said. 

"Someday, when we take Kansas State 
basketball to the Sweet 16 and to the Final 
Eight, these players are going to be sitting right 
behind this staff in the most expensive, hard- 
to-get seats in the house," she said, "because 
I'll never forget what they've given."

Player Profile 

Call it a career 

When the final buzzer went off March 7 during the Phillips 66 Big 12 
Tournament at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, the game ended, 
as did four seniors' careers. 

Jenny Coalson, Olga Firsova, Angie Finkes and Nicky Ramage 
completed their college basketball careers with a 67-59 loss to 
Oklahoma State. 

"I would do anything for them to have gone out with a 20-win season 
or with a greater run through this tournament," head coach Deb 
Patterson said. "But they left their mark and they've given us something 
to build upon." 

The women not only left a lasting impression in the eyes of fans, but 
also in the record books. 

• Coalson, who did not play most of her senior season due to a 
femoral stress fracture she suffered Dec. 18, ended her career ranked 
fifth all-time in assists. 

• Finkes finished seventh all-time in double-doubles and field goal 
attempts, eighth all-time in rebounds and points and 9th all-time in career 
starts. The native Ohioan left K-State as one of only 1 5 players to score 
1 ,000 points and grab 500 rebounds in a career. 

• Firsova left K-State as the all-time leader in blocked shots and fifth 
all-time in men's and women's basketball history. 

• Ramage finished third all-time in blocked shots and was the 15th 
player ever to score 1 ,000 points and grab 500 rebounds in her career. 

"Just getting the opportunity to play with these people is just 
something you'll never forget, especially tonight (Senior Night, March 
1) when you've played your last game on Bramlage floor," Ramage 
said. "Just all the fans that come and see you every game, people like 
that make you glad to be on this team with great girls like this." 

Careers in college basketball ended this season for seniors jenny coalson, nicky ramage, 
Olga Firsova and Angie Finkes. Ramage, Finkes and Coalson had all been at K-State 
for four years. Firsova finished her career playing only two years as a Wildcat after 
transferring from Weatherford Junior College in Weatherford, Texas. (Photos by Steven

Women's basketball practice went 45 minutes longer than intended Feb. 
1. The team's performance had not met the coaches' standards. So the team 
practiced longer, running suicides for mistakes and scrimmaging to perfect 
their full-court trap. 

Although not part of the team, six men stayed. For the men, the practice's 
intensity varied daily based on what the coaches asked of them. 

Scouted by coaches at the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex, the men 
were chosen based on skill and overall attitude. They started trial practicing 

until the coaches chose their team. 

The men's practice squad played 
as a scout team and ran defensive and 
offensive plays from the next 
opponent's play book to help the 
women prepare for upcoming games. 
And as long as the women's team 
practiced, so did the practice squad. 

Aside from practicing, the men 
attended all the home games. 

"We see the girls react in ways they 
wanted to react in practice," Tim 
Ketterman, junior in business admin- 
istration, said. "We like to think that 
we had a little to do with some of their 
reactions and some of the different 
ways they handled pressure." 

The team used practice squads 
since head coach Deb Patterson 
implemented the system after her 1996 
arrival from Vanderbilt University. 

"I just think that since all of us have grown up through high school playing 
basketball together, this is just another way to keep us in shape," Darin Golay, 
senior in hotel and restaurant management, said. "They push us to our full 
potential. It just makes us feel good when we see the reflection on game day." 
Playing against faster, stronger and quicker people added a new dimension 
to the team's game, senior guard Jenny Coalson said. 

"These guys just bring a level of intensity and quickness, and they do a 
really good job of looking at ways to break you down," Coalson said. "They 
just bring more athleticism and quickness and just to where we can put up 
some fresh people on the floor all the time." 

The men attended daily practices, including morning shoot-arounds which 
began around 7 a.m. when the team had Saturday games. 

"I think they are some of the greatest people in the world," Coalson said. 
"To come and run and do not necessarily the funnest drills in the whole wide 
world, to play defense all the time, to give up that part of themselves. Every 
one of them must love the game, and they must love giving to us." 

Every one of them must love the game/' Jenny Coalson

off-court problems, losing streak 


team finishes last in conference 


The men's basketball team's regular season 
was marred when the Wildcats lost 11 in a 
row, including 15 of their last 16 games, to 
finish last in the conference. It was the long- 
est losing streak in 54 years. 

Before entering the season, head coach 
Tom Asbury had led the Wildcats to the 
school's eighth 20-win season, but Asbury 
became K-State's first head coach since Fritz 
Knorr in 1946 to have an overall losing record 
as a coach. 

To open the season, Asbury had the Cats 
where they wanted to be with wins over 
Conference USA opponents Memphis and 
the University of St. Louis. K-State posted a 
7-4 non-conference record. 

Asbury expressed his frustrations after 
losing at home to Oklahoma State 71-56 Jan. 
26, midway through the losing streak. 

"I'm not happy," Asbury said. "Let's get 
off the frustration questions, OK? Who 
wouldn't be after losing five games in a 

With a record of 26-4 overall and 14-2 in 
the Big 12, Iowa State University won the 
conference championship in a league that 
featured five top-25 teams. 

According to the Rating Percentage In- 
dex, K-State's strength of schedule was 14th 
in the nation. 

In the heat of a conference season that 
featured the second-longest losing streak in 

school history, off-court problems began to 
plague the team. 

Junior point guard Galen Morrison felt the 
pressure of trying to bring home a victory. 

After the Oklahoma State contest, a game 
K-State dropped 71-56 at Bramlage Coliseum, 
Morrison wasn't shy in letting the media 
know what he thought of the K-State coach- 
ing staff. 

"Coaches, plain and simple. Coaches. I'm 
just getting fed up with a lot of stuff," 
Morrison said of his frustrations of losing. "I 
don't like people saying after games that 
we're losing, that I'm pointing fingers and 
saying that we're losing because of other 

Due to his remarks, Morrison wasn't al- 
lowed to start the following game at Ne- 
braska, where he scored a team-high 21 
points. He also issued a written statement of 
apology to the fans and media. 

"I would like to say I'm sorry for the com- 
ments that I made after the Oklahoma State 
game. The things I said were out of frustra- 
tion and should have been kept behind closed 
doors," Morrison said. "I would also like to 
apologize to my teammates and to our fans 
and loyal supporters. Hopefully, everyone can 
forgive me for the mistake I made, and we 
can move on." 

Morrison was dismissed from the team 
Feb. 19 for disciplinary reasons Asbury did

At the time of his dismissal, Morrison 
was the team's third-leading scorer, 
averaging 12 points per game. He also 
drained 64 three-pointers at an alarming 
regularity, making 44 percent of them. 

Leading the way at the shooting guard 
position was the 1998-99 season's leading 
scorer, senior Cortez Groves, who averaged 
16 points per game. 

Groves' best game was against the Texas 
A&M Aggies Feb. 23 when he had three 
career-highs with 30 points, six assists and 
eight three-pointers. His performance also 
guided the Cats to an 81-76 victory, their 
second conference win and last of the season. 

"In the first half, they keyed in on me 
toward the end of the half," Groves said. "In 
the second half, I thought they would, too. 
But they left me open, and I continued to hit 
the shots." 

Senior Tony Kitt, who transferred to K- 

By Royal Purple 

State from Colby (Kan.) Community College, 
led the Cats in the post. Kitt finished his career 
as one of K-State's most prolific shot blockers 
and rebounders. In just two seasons, he 
grabbed 494 rebounds. He finished his career 
sixth all-time with 83 blocked shots. 

Kitt finished the season ranked third in the 
conference in rebounds averaging nine per 
game. Kitt's best effort was against Missouri 
Feb. 19 at Bramlage, when despite losing 84- 
74, he scored 18 points and grabbed 14 boards. 

Seeded 12th in the Phillips 66 Big 12 
Tournament, the team ended its season March 
9 at Kansas City's Kemper Arena in the 
opening round to fifth-seeded Kansas 84-60. 

"This wasn't really the way I wanted to 
go out," senior Josh Reid said. "I got to play 
KU one more time. I don't have any regrets 
coming here (K-State). I wouldn't wish this 
year on anybody, with our record and my 
injury, but I don't have anything to hang my 
head about."

Asbury resigns after worst basketball season in 54 years 

Friday morning, March 10, 
less than 24 hours after head 
coach Tom Asbury's 17th 
consecutive loss to the University 
of Kansas, K-State Athletic 
Director Max Urick announced 
Asbury's resignation. 

The Wildcats went 9-1 9 overall 
this year, 2-14 in the Big 12. 
Asbury was the first coach since 
Fritz Knorr to leave K-State with 
a losing record. The 19 losses 
ranked second all-time for most 
losses in a season. 

"Tom Asbury and his coaching 
staff did not come to Kansas State 
to fail," Urick said in a press 
release. "No one worked harder 
over the past six seasons to make 
K-State a successful basketball 

In his six seasons at K-State, 
Asbury compiled an 85-88 record, 
putting him fifth on the career 

victories list. Coaching 173 
games, he ranked fourth on the 
all-time list. 

He led the Cats to an NCAA 
Tournament appearance in 1 996 
and two NIT appearances in 
1998 and 1999. In all three 
appearances, the Wildcats did 
not get past the first round. 

Asbury came to K-State in 
1995 replacing coach Dana 
Altman, who had resigned. 

He had previously spent six 
years at Pepperdine University 
where he won three conference 
titles, appeared in three NCAA 
Tournaments and left the school 
with a 125-59 record. 

"Unfortunately, things don't 
always work out as we would like 
them to in every situation," Urick 
said. "We certainly wish Coach 
Asbury and his staff the best of 
luck in the future."

Despite struggles team 

takes Iowa for first time 

After defeating their main rival at 
the University of Kansas by a substan- 
tial margin of 30 seconds during the 
1998 season, the women's crew team 
struggled to ac- 

complish the same 
feat in 1999. 

"The second 
varsity eight was 
behind and able to 
pull ahead and 
win, "senior 
Amanda Kiefer 
said. "It was just 
a great race and a 
good moment. It 
really united the 
team, even though 
KU won and took 
the trophy, the 
Kansas Cup." 

The team posted good individual 
boat times, but had trouble compiling 
enough points to do well at meets. 

"The spring season was a growing 
experience," senior Jamie Morris said. 
" We learned what we needed to work 
on and improve on, and we strived to 
do our best. We reached some of our 
goals, and we made new ones to strive 
for next year." 

Although unable to reach one of the 
goals, attending the NCAA tourna- 
ment, the women overcame smaller 
team and individual hurdles, Morris 

"One goal we met was to beat Iowa 
in a head race for the first time," senior 
Tricia Stockebrand said. "We only beat

Having a varsity four and two var-

process that never

comes to a head race 
of about 16-20 min- 
utes over three or 
four miles and you 
pull it out by a frac- 
tion of a second, 

that's great racing." 

The closeness of the team unified the 
rowers, allowing for a positive learn- 
ing environment, Stockebrand said. 

"It's always neat," she said. "Every 
season is unique because of all the 
people, and that's why each season 
stands out in my mind. It's the people 
in your boat who make each year re- 
ally special." 

The season was a challenge, a great 
learning experience and a starting point 
all in one, some team members said. 

"This season wasn't the best, but it 
was an excellent springboard for the 
rest of the team, for the rest of their 
years," Kiefer said. "We had an excel- 
lent novice team, some really good 
races, and we're ready to move on."

self-sufficient team 

grows in record numbers 

After more than 30 years without 
funding from the university, the men's 
crew team remained the only club sport 
with varsity status. 

"In the early '60s, when rowing was 
first introduced to K-State, the original 
idea was to bring it to varsity," first-year 
varisty head coach Seiji Ikeda said. "But 
they didn't have the funds, so they 
made it varsity with lettering." 

To combat the costs, team members 
parked cars at Bramlage Coliseum to 
raise money. They 
also organized the 
program where for 
a minimum 

donation rowers 
gave up their time 
to individuals who 
needed help with 
yard work, 

moving. Alumni 
also helped the team with funds. 

The fundraisers helped, but rowing 
was an expensive sport and although 
the team raised about $7,000 annually, 
it was not enough to cover all the 
expenses, Ikeda said. 

"When we have eight rowers on the 
water," he said, "they are in a new 
$20,000 boat. The oars are about $250 
each, so with 16 oars, that's $4,000. Our 
electric out speaker unit is about $2,000, 
too. And after you add in our trailer and 
other equipment and clothing it's about 
$40,000 to manage every time we race." 

Although the team 
raised about $7,000 
annually, it was not 
enough to cover all 
the expenses. 

Hie varsity crew team ended its sea- 
son placing in the top six at four meets, 
including a first place finish at the Quad 
Cities Regatta Oct. 9 in Moline, 111. The 
team beat two Big 12 schools, includ- 
ing the University of Nebraska and the 
University of Kansas for the top spot. 
The novice team also enjoyed suc- 
cess finishing first at their first regatta, 
the American Royal Fall Rowing Clas- 
sic in Kansas City, Mo. The team also 
had a second-place finish at their sec- 
ond and final re- 
gatta, the Frost- 
bite Regatta in 
Wichita Nov. 7. 

"From when I 
first started this is 
the largest novice 
class I've seen," 
senior John 
Granberry said. 
"We started with 
50 and now we're down to 16, but 
we've got some strong guys." 

The addition in numbers on the 
novice squad assisted the team as they 
prepared to fill the void varsity spots 
for next year. 

"This is the last year for a lot of us," 
senior Mark Woods said. "We'll only 
have about five returning varsity 
rowers next year. A large novice class 
was needed just to keep the team going 
in future years. I think next year's 
varsity has the potential to do some 
great things."

After suffering a 6-9 loss at the hands of 

Truman State University, roller hockey club 

members, including senior Jeremy Murphy, 

sophomore Ben Murphy and junior Nick 

Canelos change and put away their gear as 

they prepare to head back home. They had 

just finished the Blue Springs Tournament 

Nov. 6 and 7 in Lee's Summitt, Mo. The team 

ended the weekend tourney with an even 

record of one win and one loss. Their overall 

record after that weekend improved to 6-2-1 .

Truman State Bulldogs in the final game of 

the Blue Springs Tournament. Due to lack of 

funds, teammates usually carpooled for their 

away games. Wilke, who is also club 

president, said that with hotel stays, gas and 

food money, trips usually cost about $50 each 

person. He also said a trip to Kansas City, 

Mo., usually meant the team saved a few 

dollars because they stayed at his parents' 

house. (Photo by Evan Semon)

independent, young team 


with stronger freshmen, increased wins 

A young and financially independent roller 
hockey club began its climb to the top of the 
Great Plains Collegiate Inline Hockey 
League winning nine of their 13 games. 

Covering Kansas, Missouri and Iowa, the 
GPCIHL formed the league based on each 
team's geographic location. The league split 
into Division 1 and Division 2 levels. The 
roller hockey club played on the Division 2 
level because they had little competition 
experience compared to Division 1 teams. 

In the league, the Wildcats competed 
against some Big 12 teams like the University 
of Missouri and the University of Kansas. 

At the team's first tournament in St. 
Louis, every team member scored a goal en 
route to an 18-8 win against the Duhawks of 
Iowa's Loras College. 

"The two main reasons we are doing so 
well this year is because we have a really 
talented freshman class and the older 
members have improved dramatically," 
senior Dail Hong said. "The freshman class 
has a lot of fire power and the older members 
are showing great leadership skills." 

At a tournament in Pacific, Mo., Mike 
Wolff, one standout freshman, scored in all 

three games for a combined total of eight 
goals. The team expected Wolff to be one of 
the top five scorers in the GPCIHL. 

"I have been playing hockey my whole 
life," Wolff said. "It is an honor that my 
teammates feel that I might finish in the top 
five in the league." 

The amount of improvement surprised 
the club considering the lack of practice 
facilities and funds, junior Jeff Wilke said. 

Other teams in the league had practice 
facilities but Wilke said the club practiced on 
the tennis courts between Goodnow and 
Marlatt halls, as the university would not 
allow them to practice anywhere else. 

"The tennis courts are half the size of a 
regulation court," Wilke said. "They are 
nowhere near the same type of playing 
surface either." 

The men did what they could during 
practices as they posted the best record in 
team history. 

"We basically scrimmage and see what we 
can do," Wilke said. "We usually have one 
goalie to give him practice too. It's hard to 
do because when we practice on the courts, 
we can't even play with the regular puck."

women make tourney four 


seasons, end with highest school rank 

Led by three All-Big 12 selections and 
guided by a conference coach of the year, 
the volleyball team made its 
way into the big dance for 
the fourth consecutive year. 

The women made it to 
the NCAA tournament 
sweeping past the University 
of Louisville, 15-1, 15-6, 15- 
10, in the first round of the 
Mountain Regional at Moby 
Arena in Fort Collins, Colo. 
They went on to face 11th- 
ranked Colorado State. 

That proved to be the fi- 
nal game of the year for the 
Wildcats as, for the fourth 
time, they failed to make the 
sweet 16. 

"The only way we can 
correct that," Jim Mc- 
Laughlin, head coach and 
Big 12 Coach of the Year, said, 
"is by being a top-10 team 
playing on our home court." 

Aside from the postseason appearance, 
the year's highlight came Sept. 22 when the 
team traveled to Lincoln, Neb. That night, 
the Cats defeated the then fourth-ranked 
Cornhuskers for the first time in 60 meet-

ings, the entire history of K-State vs. Ne- 
braska volleyball. 

Down 0-2, the Cats were 
on the verge of another loss 
to the Huskers. But K-State 
came back winning the next 
three games, 18-16, 15-7, 17- 
15, to seal the upset. 

"It's exciting. I'm so 
speechless," sophomore Liz 
Wegner said after the victory. 
"I don't even know what to 
say. We knew that if we came 
in here and served well and 
passed tough that we had a 
chance to win. This is only 
the first step. We'll just have 
to build from here." 

Individual performances 
accompanied the team's ac- 
complishments. The Big 12 
conference named senior 
Dawn Cady and sophomore 
Disney Bronnenberg to the 
All-Big 12 first team. Wegner 
received an honorable-mention selection. 

"They need their teammates as much as 
their teammates need them," McLaughlin 
said. "But that's the neat thing about K-State, 
and that's been our philosophy. Unity —

you've got to be united." 

Cady ended her collegiate career 
being named Big 12 Player of the 
Week twice in 1999. The Marshall, 
Minn., native became only the 
second K-Stater ever to be named 
American Volleyball Coaches' 
Association/Imports National 
Player of the Week. She was also 
named to the AVCA All-American 
second team, a first for K-State 
volleyball. She ended the regular 
season ranked third in the in country 
in kills, averaging 5.67 per game. 

Cady also finished her year as the 
single-season record holder for kills 
and attacks. She climbed to second 
place on the all-time list in kills with 
1,611 and attacks with 4,216. 

Passion for the game was her main 
drive, Cady said. 

"I just play to have fun," she said. 
"I love to compete. When I step on the 
court, it's like I'm getting all this 
opportunity to just have fun, to go out 
there and do something I love to do. I 
love the game, so I go full speed all 
the time."

Whether students lived off campus or on campus, in a 
greek house, a cooperative or a scholarship house, 
groups offered abundant chances for students to 
participate in community service projects and social 
activities. In between living options, students could 
choose their level of involvement, ranging from time 
commitments to financial contributions.* Housing groups 
also encouraged an active involvement in sports among 
members and residents. Delta Delta Delta offered a 9- 
hole golf scramble open to members, family, friends and 
the community. # Haymaker Hall participated in 
Superfans night for the men's basketball team to help 
increase the number of fans in the stands and K-State 
players' morale at games. In between the benefits to K- 
State's basketball program's numbers and Haymaker's 
nuisance to the other teams, fans enjoyed the added 
excitement.* Renovation plans spread across living 
groups, from updating current facilities to starting from 
square one. Kappa Delta recolonized after a six-year 
absence, leaving members discovering how to organize 
a sorority from the ground up. Delta Upsilon moved 
into the former Sigma Sigma Sigma house while 
completing its $ 1 .5-million renovation project. The 
renovation left the fraternity in between the excitement 
of enticing new rushees and the fear rushees might 
prioritize living in the renovated house more than the 
fraternity's goals. •Contests and awards gave students 
an opportunity to pursue recognition from organizations 
on campus and nationally. Alpha Phi Alpha played host 
to the Miss Black and Gold Pageant, staying in between 
the stereotypes linked to a beauty pageant and the 
pageant's focus on contestants' personality.

Clovia alumnae dedicate scholarship in memory of new pledge 




Alpha of Clovia alumnae dedicated a scholarship in 
Jennifer Norris' name after her death Sept. 27. 

Norris, junior in arts and sciences and a transfer 
student from Cowley County Community College, joined 
the 1999 Clovia pledge class in the fall. She died from 
injuries sustained in a car accident on her way from her 
hometown Dexter, Kan., to Manhattan. 

Clovia alumnae awarded the first $250 Jennifer Norris 
Memorial Scholarship spring 2000. Applicants completed 
several essay questions, and the 10-member board 
reviewed applications to choose the recipient. Kim Meyer, 
president and senior in agricultural education, said grades, 
involvement in house activities and leadership qualities 
and abilities would be taken into consideration for the 
award. She expected five to six applications each year. 

"The specifics are still up in the air," she said. "One 
person will receive it each year, and it will probably go to 
a transfer student. The alums give the money so the amount 
will be a year-to-year thing." 

The 1999 Clovia Pledge class also dedicated a Talisman 
Rosebush in Norris' name. 

"The bush will be planted in front of the house," said 
Sara Schwinn, senior in secondary education. "It's neat that 
the pledge class donated the bush. The Talisman Rose is 



our house flower." 

Maria Quick, freshman in elementary 
education, pledged Clovia with Norris. 

"She was a nice girl," she said. "This 
(scholarship) is a way to remember her forever." 

Clovia donated its $100 award for winning 
Purple Power Play on Poyntz, one activity during 
Homecoming week, in Norris' memory. 

"We won Purple Power Play on Poyntz for 
Homecoming," said Meyer. "We had the highest 
attendance record. We chose a charity to send $100 to. We 
chose the Manhattan Crisis Center in memory of Jennifer." 

Clovia members said Norris participated in many 
activities including intramurals. 

"She was a new member and was very vibrant," 
Meyer said. "She loved sports. She played volleyball, 
football and had a passion for people. Her spirit was so 
high it was amazing." 

Clovia members agreed the scholarship helped them 
remember Norris. 

"The scholarship is a good opportunity to keep her 
memorial going," Meyer said. "It really tells what Jen was 
all about. I'm glad the alums considered doing something 
like this for her."

Smith Scholarship House residents may have lacked a 
mother figure in the house but a Fort Riley soldier served as 
their houseparent. 

Cynthia Shanley, former housemother or executive di- 
rector, resigned after three years of service to Smith in spring 
1999. To replace her position, 1st Lt. Chuck Caudill took over. 

"I thought it would be cool to come back here," Caudill 
said. "It's a different relationship from where the guys call 
me 'Sir,' and (the Smith men) just call me 'Chuck.' " 

As a K-State biology and education student, Caudill lived 
in Smith from 1992 to 1997, and later joined the military and 
was assigned to Fort Riley in July 1998. When Shanley 
resigned, alumni looked to Caudill as Operations Commit- 
tee member, a committee that oversaw Smith's operations. 

"I almost saw it coming," Caudill said. "I knew she had 
resigned, and with the short notice they had, the alumni 
asked me. They needed me." 

When alumni hired Caudill, they understood his sched- 
ule, and he would not be able to fulfill all alumni requests. 

"Most of (the requests were) fundraising and getting in 
touch with alumni," Caudill said. "We have a student who 
does that. It was suggested that a student do that to take a 
little load off the director." 

Caudill said the men ran the house themselves. He also 
said he did not have to do much to help residents out with 
problems, but said he offered to if the situation ever came up. 

"If (a student) comes to me with a problem," Caudill said, 
"I'll try my darnedest to try and help them out with it." 

Caudill said he did not spend as much time with resi- 
dents as he would like because he got up at 4:45 a.m. to be at 
Fort Riley by 5:15 a.m. He did not return until around 6 p.m. 

Caudill assigned residents chores that took five to seven 
hours a week to complete in order to keep the cost of living 
down. If they did not complete the jobs, Caudill gave the 
resident a duty cut, which meant the resident had to do an 
additional job. Three duty cuts entailed a breach of contract. 

"He's a tough guy," C.W. Popp, junior in mechanical 
engineering, said. "He's one of your classic male figures who 
doesn't show that much emotion. If you wanted a stereotypi- 
cal army guy, Chuck would be it." 

Although replaced with a father figure, Popp said the 
female presence could not be substituted. 

"I think it is nice to have a motherly figure," Popp said. "If 
there is not a female around, there tends to be more language 
at the table and the possibility you might slip back into your 
common nature." 

Shawn Sherraden, sophomore in mechanical engineer- 
ing, said Caudill kept residents on their toes more then the 
previous housemother, but they still enjoyed his presence. 

"He's a lot tougher (than a housemother)," Sherraden 
said. "He also lets us have a lot of fun. As far as parties go, he 
gives us some slack. He's a hell of a nice guy."

During the holiday season, Smurthwaite members found 
a way to give to the community by adopting a child. 
Smurthwaite adopted a 5-year-old girl from Flint Hills 
Breadbasket's Mayor's Holiday Adopt- A-Family Program. 

"Every year Smurthwaite tries to get involved in 
community service," said Melissa Glaser, service learning 
coordinator and senior in elementary education. "I thought 
it might be a way to help out." 

Glaser proposed the idea at a house meeting. 

"In high school, I was in 4-H and adopted a family," said 
Abby Hall, freshman in human ecology and mass 
communications. "I've learned that when others are in need, 
there is always a way to raise the money and help others." 

After Smurthwaite offered to be a donor, the Breadbasket 
took information about who the group wanted to adopt. 

"Everyone has a different purpose when they decide to 
become a donor or recipient," Shirley Bramhall, Breadbasket 
executive director, said. "We want to make good matches." 

Recipients signed up Nov. 1 to Nov. 10, and the 
Breadbasket matched donors with families after Nov. 10. 

Donors chose the level of involvement with recipients, 
ranging from giving money to the Breadbasket and letting 
someone else buy gifts to personally buying, wrapping and 
giving gifts to families. 

To raise money, members could give personal donations 
or go caroling in Manhattan as a group for three to four hours 
Dec. 1. While caroling, they gave out flyers, which 
homeowners could mail back with an enclosed donation. 

The house raised about $125, mostly through caroling. 
Members used funds to buy gifts such as outfits, toys and 
books from the child's wish list, provided by Breadbasket. 
Members then wrapped and delivered the gifts to the 
recipient's home. 

"Not only the family was affected," Hall said. "It bonded 
us too, because the caroling got us together. It benefited both 
parties involved."

The two competitors slipped into their electrically 
threaded vests and prepared to duel. After the director's 
cue, each challenger proceeded to inflict the other's torso 
with a quick jab from a flexible blade. 

This described the routine Dianne Redler, freshman in 
arts and sciences, carried out in fencing competitions after 
she made competing in and teaching the sport a part of 
her life. Redler got involved in fencing at age 12 when her 
mother suggested it. 

"Dianne has always been very involved in all types of 
athletics, and she's always looking for something new to 
do," Deborah Redler, Redler 's mother, said. "I saw an ad 
in the newspaper for YMCA fencing lessons with a picture 
of a little girl around her age. I thought she might like it." 

Redler said after her participation in more popular 
sports, fencing required mental adjustments. 

"At first, it was sort of difficult for me to feel 
comfortable with having someone come toward me with 
this weapon and being expected to do the same," she said. 
"I was pretty intimidated, but after a year or so I developed 
more confidence and was able to become more aggressive." 

Redler said she appreciated fencing's challenges and 
its differences from other sports. 

"Fencing is much more of an individual sport," she said. 
"When you're out there, you're on your own. The coach 
isn't allowed to tell you anything at all, so you have to 
think a lot in order to figure out what it is that you need to 

Although fencing demanded eight hours per week of 
practice and conditioning for Redler, she said college did 


not deter her from the sport. * <: 

"The time and effort are worth it," Redler said. zr 
"It's a great sport that enforces important skills. It 
takes a good combination of mental strategies as 
well as physical coordination." 

Redler also said she decided to take her fencing 
commitment a step up. Aside from her own 
private and public lessons, Redler volunteered to 
teach the sport through weekly UFM fencing 
classes in her spare time. 

"I've always been impressed with my fencing 
teachers," she said. "I wanted to be able to give something 
back to the sport, and I had the experience necessary to 
aid in instructing the classes." 

Bill Meyer, UFM fencing coach, said Redler 's help with 
fencing classes came as a pleasant surprise. 

"She just appeared with her dad one night and 
expressed an interest to improve the fencing quality in 
Manhattan," Meyer said. "I recognized right away she'd 
had training in the classical form. Her movements were 
very clean, cleaner than mine even." 

After receiving third place in Division 3 of women's 
foil at the 1999 Fencing Summer Nationals, thus qualifying 
for Division 2, Redler said she wanted to place in the top 
eight in Division 1A, an advanced-ability competition. 

"I really hope to keep improving," she said. "I can see 
myself doing this forever. The club sort of becomes a 
family. We have the same purposes and even sometimes 
the same conflicts. We have to learn to deal with each other 
and build each other up."

Ford Hall residents scattered around the third-floor 
lobby for a craft night Dec. 7. Toting craft supplies such as 
vases, glass bottles, glitter and markers, about 30 of the 
floor's 65 residents created holiday gifts. 

"It was a big hit," said Erin Matyak, third-floor resident 
assistant and sophomore in psychology. "The girls loved 
it. Almost all said we should have another craft night." 

Matyak thought of the idea as a way for the floor to have 
a social event and to build hall community at the same 
time. She also said no one had much money at the end of the 
semester, so she thought it would be fun to make Christ- 
mas gifts. 

Rebecca Leever, freshman in engineering, said the third 
floor usually had an activity one or two times per month. 
Leever said she used the opportunity to make gifts. 

"I decided to go because I was in a group that had Secret 
Santa gifts, and they had to be under $1 ," Leever said. "And 
I love crafts." 

Matyak said she spent about $25 from the floor account 





for supplies. They used Modge Podge glue and 
photos or magazine clippings to make decoupage. 
In order to make decoupage, they put a coat of 
Modge Podge glue on a vase or bottle, placed a 
magazine clipping or photo on the glue, then 
added another coat to make a clear finish. 

They also decorated pens by wrapping them in 
modeling clay and baking them to solidify the 
clay. Matyak said they also made holiday cards 
using cardstock paper, markers and glitter. 

"Originally, it was scheduled from seven to 10 at 
night," Matyak said. "But a group of about 10 girls stayed 
up making crafts until one in the morning." 

Tiffany Blake, freshman in business administration, 
said the floor residents had a lot of fun talking and working 
on their decoupage. 

"I just stopped by on my way home from the rec," Blake 
said. "I stayed until 1 a.m., but I didn't intend to stay that

As the new century approached, Goodnow Hall had its 
first-floor lobby modernized for the first time since its 
construction in 1960. 

"I think the lobby suits the times and is more inviting," 
said Jessica Decker, Hall Governing Board president and 
junior in apparel and marketing design. "Before it was just 
bland, but the renovation adds character to our hall." 

Skyler Harper, assistant director of Housing and Dining 
Services and facilities management, said he considered 
updating the hall his top priority. Goodnow's renovations 
included more efficient storage for the front desk, two e- 
mail terminals, more space in the lobby and automatic doors 
to meet Americans With Disabilities Act regulations. Other 
residence halls faced different types of changes such as 
cluster housing or suites while the dining centers planned 
to become food courts. 

"One of our biggest problems last year was the computer 
room," Teanikia Britton, community assistant and senior in 
management, said. "There constantly was a waiting list for 
the computers in the basement. The e-mail terminals have 
given the students easier access and convenience." 

Harper said facilities learned from mistakes while also 
trying to make each lobby unique to its hall. 

"We try new things on every lobby," Harper said. "We 
try to make a conscious effort to make each different. The e- 

mail stations seem to be very popular." 

Other added features included new furniture and new 
carpet with a Powercat design in the lobby entrance. 

"Parents are really impressed at the Wildcat in the carpet 
as they walk in," Britton said. "When old residents come 
back, they are really surprised." 

Chuck Werring, Housing and Dining Services director, 
said Goodnow underwent little change until this year. When 
he returned to be director in 1990, he said Goodnow looked 
the same as it did when he attended K-State in the 1970s. 

"The evolution from past to present has been wonderful," 
Werring said. "Part of our future is the students. That is 
who we serve." 

In honor of the project, Goodnow community assistants 
organized and prepared a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 
hall Dec. 3 and provided speakers and refreshments. 

"We wanted to do something special for those people 
who didn't know about the renovation," Britton said. "We 
wanted them to enjoy it as much as we do." 

Harper said there would be additional work on the stone 
outside the front entrance, and they would also add a canopy 
over the front entrance. The project figures were on hold 
until the completion of the final additions, he said, but it 
was budgeted at $75,000.

Superfans night increases fan involvement for men's basketball 

Before the first fan entered Bramlage Coliseum Dec. 8 to 
watch the Wildcats play host to the University of Memphis, 
more than 50 men from Haymaker Hall prepared to taunt 
the Tigers as they read information packets about the team. 

To get more fan involvement at basketball games, the 
Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and assistant bas- 
ketball coach Brent Bargen created Superfans night. The 
department assigned four residence halls and 10 greek 
organizations to men's home basketball games. 

"The day before the game they took us through their 
program," James McCallie, freshman in agricultural eco- 
nomics, said. "We got to watch them practice for one hour, 
and we got to go through the facility. We saw the scout 
room, the weight room and just the whole building." 

Haymaker's men led the team out on the court and 
received recognition from the game announcer over the 
public address system. Superfans received free T-shirts 
and media guides to provide them with factual informa- 
tion about the opposing team. They sat next to the K-State 
bench taunting any Memphis player who came their way. 





"During warm-ups we had signs saying stuff," 
McCallie said. "We started taunting a guy on their 
team named Paris London. We just ripped on him 
and his mom for giving him that name. Eventually 
it got to him. I mean, I had my back turned, but I 
saw this basketball whiz by my head. Later we 
found out he passed by us and side-armed it so 
that no one could see him." 

Todd Clark, Haymaker residence life coordi- 
nator, pushed the idea of Superfans to the residence halls 
and said he enjoyed ridiculing the Memphis players. 

"We had fun mimicking Memphis' stretching exer- 
cises and utilizing the information we had from the media 
guides provided to us," Clark said. "I ended up losing my 
voice at the end of the night." 

The program sparked life into Wildcat fans and play- 
ers, Cindy Fox, senior woman administrator, said. 

"They have been better than expected," she said. "The 
kids have been terrific and even the women (Superfans) 
have been getting into it. The team enjoys it very much."

Rising numbers of students in residence halls literally 
lowered the options, of where students could live. Housing 
standards remained the same no matter the location, but 
students' living elevations dropped. Students lived in ter- 
races, or halls' basements, in the early 1990s, but this event 
happened less often as housing contract numbers declined. 

In fall 1999, increased enrollment and the number of 
resident contracts resulted in an overflow to halls' lower 
levels, Derek Jackson, residence life assistant director, said. 

"The large number of students who lived in the terraces 
turned in late housing contracts," Jackson said, "which re- 
sulted in students living temporarily in the terraces." 

Students who turned in their contracts earliest moved 
out of the terraces first, Jackson said. The terrace rooms were 
temporary housing, and as space became available, students 
moved into their permanent housing on other floors. 

To incorporate terrace students into the first-floor com- 
munity, Brandon Grossardt, first-floor Moore Hall resident 

assistant and senior in mathematics, posted all floor activi- 
ties on terrace students' doors. 

"The students lived on different floors, so they didn't 
hang out with those on other floors," Grossardt said. "They 
did make an effort to be part of first floor and its functions." 

Scott Moses, freshman in arts and sciences, lived in 
Marlatt 's terrace. Moses said students in their terrace did not 
have a resident assistant to come down and talk with them. 

"We were on our own down there," Moses said. "The 
only interaction I had was because I was on a baseball team 
with some students on other floors." 

After Thanksgiving, Moses and his roommate, Justin 
Riley, freshman in business administration, moved to sixth 
floor, he said. 

"I liked the (terrace) room at the beginning of the year 
when it was hot outside and cooler in the terrace," Riley said. 
"The only problem was the trash man would come at seven 
in the morning and wake all of the guys up on the floor."

Students gather to express personality, release creativity 



faster than Crowe or himself. _~? 

"I think (Crane) comes up with a lot of funny CD 
things and phrases," Unrein said, "and that's co 
what he does when we're talking to him - just 
some witty comments. Sometimes he will throw 
in some mathematical stuff too. He likes to make 
people think about what he's saying." 

Crane said when he rapped, he tried to convey 
his personality. 

"Music is supposed to be an expression," he said. 
"That's how I look at it. I like it better like that than what's 
on the radio." 

Rogers said they rapped as a way to entertain them- 
selves as well as release tension. 

"We do it to get a lot of things off our mind," he said. 
"A lot of poets write stuff down to get it off their head, and 
we freestyle to release our stress." 

Crane said he and his friends wanted to take their 
freestyle rapping to the next level. It was their dream to 
release a single or get vinyl pressed, Unrein said. 

"Everybody who hears us freestyle really enjoys it," 
Unrein said. "We feel that if we took the time to make a 
song, we could get some people interested in it at least." 

Unrein said he didn't like to rap about insignifigant 
things and had ambitions to inspire other people. 

"People like to watch," he said, "and we enjoy enter- 
taining people that way." 

Improvisation combined with a beat became the scene 
in Moore 933 nearly every weekend. Despite the limited 
space residence halls provided, Brad Crane, sophomore in 
electrical engineering, invited his friends to his room for a 
freestyle rap session. 

"We set up a couple of Technique turntables, a mic into 
a stereo, and just go at it," Crane said. 

Crane started freestyle rapping his freshman year at 
Maize High School in Maize, Kan., along with Kersten 
Crowe, junior in modern languages education, and Shane 
Unrein, junior in management information systems. 

"I always listened to the music since I was little," Crane 
said. "I saw it on Rap City, and I started knowing that it was 
something possible you could do, so I gave it a shot," 

Crane said his friends also had a major influence on 
him, because they experimented with it at the same time. In 
addition, Crane had cassette tapes of rappers free styling, 
which also motivated him, he said. 

"It's like you feel the beat and just go off on it," Crane 
said. "That's where the natural ability comes in, you don't 
consciously think about it, you just do it." 

Ray Rogers, sophomore in mechanical engineering and 
Crane's roommate, said Crane's style was based on his 

"When (Crane) freestyles, he tries to use extensive 
metaphors." Rogers said. "It's kind of a complex style." 

Unrein said Crane preferred a quick beat and rhymed

Doughnuts, movies and politics rarely related. But for 
Putnam Hall residents, these three things brought life to 
Tuesday nights. 

The hall's floor presidents and resident assistants de- 
cided to make Tuesdays more enjoyable for their residents 
with Rockin' Tuesday Nights. Every Tuesday, special events 
took place about one hour apart throughout the building so 
all residents could attend. 

"There is always a group of people who go around and 
get other people (for the events)," Alex Darby, freshman in 
civil engineering, said. "We eat doughnuts, and go watch 
movies, and then we go upstairs and smoke cigars and talk." 

Activities started at 6 p.m. on third floor with Tuesday 
Night Get-Togethers. The Get-Togethers varied as to what 
students did. Events included making Halloween cards for 
the elderly and judging a door-decorating contest. 

At 8:30 p.m., second floor took over with doughnuts from 
the Doughnut King. Students nominated themselves to be 
the Doughnut King and buy doughnuts for the entire floor. 
After watching rented movies in the basement at 9:30, the 25 
to 30 students capped off the evening by going out on the 
porch, smoking cigars and discussing anything from K-State 
occurrences to the earthquakes in Turkey. 

The residents discovered another activity while talking 
at one of the early Tuesdays. 

"We found a hula hoop in the storage room," Darby said. 
"People just started hula hooping. We went around and 
some people couldn't do it. It was very, very amusing." 

Although some of the events were old, they had never all 
been held on the same evening. 

"Some (events) had been there before," Spencer 
Whiteley, sophomore in electrical engineering, said. "We 
planned it all around the VCR time, but we just envisioned 
putting them all together in one night." 

Putnam Hall received the November Community of the 
Month Award for these activities. They competed with every 
floor in each residence hall to win the award. 

Jonas Stewart, fourth-floor resident assistant and junior 
in political science, said the events brought students on his 
floor closer together. 

"People on my floor meet each other," Stewart said. "It's 
not a program like Sex in the Dark or anything like that. We 
just smoke cigars and talk about K-State. It's a relaxed 

Getting to know people on one's floor also helped with 
getting to know most of the 205 residents throughout the 
building, Whiteley said. 

"It's a lot of fun having all that stuff," Whiteley said. "It 
helps create community in Putnam. Through it, I know 
almost everyone in the building."

Van Zile residents received Hall Governing Board min- 
utes via e-mail and had access to an updated Web page, 
giving residents opportunities to reach out and get in- 
volved within the hall. When the holidays came closer, 
however, residents reached out to the community as well. 

About 13 Van Zile residents went Christmas caroling 
Dec. 7 at Wharton Manor Nursing Home in Manhattan. 

"A lot of them sang along with us," Miranda Hinrikus, 
junior in elementary education, said. "Some just sat there, 
and a lot got sad." 

They printed off the words to songs from the Internet, 
and sang at Wharton for about an hour. 

"I went caroling because I wanted to do something for 
the community for Christmas," Lesley Durfee, senior in 
English, said. "My dad used to run a nursing home, so I 
knew how much it would mean to the people there." 

Jill Kanoste, Wharton Manor activities assistant, said 
most of the residents who live there suffer from age mala- 
dies, or whose familes could no longer take care of them. 

"They can never really realize how it affects our resi- 
dents," Kanoste said. "A lot cannot get out and by (the 



carolers) coming in, it makes them feel less institu- ^ 
tionalized." CD 

Hinrikus said facial expressions varied from cq 
cheerful smiles to looks of reminiscence. 

"It looked like they were thinking about when 
they were our age," Hinrikus said. "Some stopped 
and told stories. Everyone enjoyed it. I know a lot 
of (Van Zile residents) want to do it again." 

Despite the group's small size, Durfee said 
they seemed to make Wharton residents happier. 

"Some people followed us in wheelchairs as we sang 
down the halls," Durfee said. 

Because some did not see their families often, Kanoste 
said residents were more cheerful anytime young people 

"I was happy, but I was crying too," Hinrikus said. "It 
made me happy to see they liked it, but I wasn't prepared 
to see people in that condition." 

The evening wrapped up by the carolers singing to the 
nurses, and headed back to Van Zile for hot chocolate in 
the hall president's room.

For the homecoming team of West and Marlatt halls, 
the theme " '99 Is Wildcat Time" translated into " '99 is 
Winning Time." The team won Homecoming in the 
residence hall division after breaking Strong Complex's 
five-year winning streak. 

"Our social chair was the first person to start rallying 
up people for the competition," said Rachel Crane, West 
second-floor resident assistant and senior in family studies 
and human services. "She brought up that Strong always 
won, and it was time to break their reign." 

To win the Homecoming competition, residents began 
planning early to increase participation, Crane said. 

"We started talking about Homecoming at the 
beginning of the school year, but we didn't finalize plans 
until the rules and regulations came out," Crane said. "We 
really tried to get a lot of morale throughout the halls." 

Participation increased after the competition started, 
Crane said. 

"We took the first three events and momentum built 
after that," Crane said. "We could say, 'Hey, look how close 
we are to beating Strong Complex.' We were able to get 
more people with those reasons and to motivate them." 

West and Marlatt halls swept all events except the 
Fright Night community service event. Fright Night was 
a free event where the community could preview the men's 
and women's basketball teams. 

"The kids do booths and set up stations where kids in 
the community can trick-or-treat and participate in games 
and Halloween activities," Cindy Fox, assistant athletic 
director, said. "There were 40 booths this year. After that, 
we open up the coliseum and open the show with the teams 
and skits and fireworks." 

In that event, the team blended Wildcat pride and 
staged horror. 

"We had a FrankenWillie Laboratory," said Kathy 



Lenhart, West Hall president and senior in 
management information systems. "We had boxes 
with monster parts in them. We used peeled 
grapes for eyeballs and tapioca pudding for brains. 
The kids were really grossed out by some of it." 

The team also tutored elementary students at 
the Ogden Friendship House for the Paint It 
Purple community service project. Norbert Angell, 
Marlatt fifth-floor RA and senior in management, 
won the chubby-bunny contest during Crazy Cat Kickoff. 
The contest compared who could stuff the most 
marshmallows in their mouth and still say, "Chubby 

"For Pant the Chant, myself and another girl came up 
with chants," Lenhart said. "We used nursery rhymes and 
changed the words. We had post-it notes all around the 
room and we worked them all out. It was a lot of fun." 

The team members combined the Homecoming theme 
with their expected defeat of the Baylor Bears for the spirit 

"We used an hourglass with purple and white sand 
covering a bear," Lenhart said. "It said, 'Bury the Bears.' " 

Once the parade started, the excitement and spirit for 
all participants soared, said Rachel Akins, West fourth floor 
president and senior in elementary education. 

"I think everyone was enthusiastic and upbeat," she 
said. "They never stopped cheering, and I think they had 
a really good time. I know I had a lot of fun." 

Benefits of Homecoming week, in addition to winning 
the residence hall division, included improving the 
attitudes and perceptions of residence hall members, Akins 

"I think it's a great morale builder," Akins said. "People 
in residence halls have pride in where they live and they 
become part of the Kansas State community."

A house full of Christmas decorations, an hors d'oeuvre 
buffet and live music greeted guests of the first Alpha Chi 
Omega Christmas Tea Nov. 28. 

"We cleared out the formal dining room, and the cook, 
who went to culinary school, prepared an awesome hors 
d'oeuvre buffet," Brooklyn Abbey, sophomore in agricul- 
tural economics, said. "We had these salmon treats, and we 
also had a punch bowl area. There was a string quartet in the 
formal living room, and people sat and talked and munched 
on food." 

The new housemother, Anneliese Snyder, introduced the 
idea so members could thank Alpha Chi's supporters. 

"Once our housemother brought up the idea, all of the 
girls agreed it would be nice to do," said Rebecca Campbell, 
Christmas Tea coordinator and senior in management. "We 
just wanted to show our appreciation to the community and 
to the faculty and families." 

The guests enjoyed the appreciation, said David Thomp- 
son, Westview Community Church pastor. 

"It was classy," he said. "They had an elegant buffet, nice 
mood music. Everyone was dressed up, and I found very 
friendly people." 

The tea was a formal, come-and-go-as-you-please event, 
Abbey said. 

"We didn't wear formal dresses, but we were all dressed 
up and everyone who came was very dressed up," she said. 

The event's preparation began in October by compiling a 
guest list. The members turned in names of alumni, commu- 
nity members, neighbors, faculty and family members they 
wanted to thank. 

Members used simple decorations because the house 

would already be decorated for the holidays, Campbell said. 
Only the buffet table had additional decorations, which 
consisted of pine garlands and purple irises. 

Other preparations for the event included organizing the 
music. To greet the arriving guests, Jennifer Monroe, senior 
in elementary education; Josie Knapp, junior in music edu- 
cation; and Becky Broxterman, junior in communication 
sciences and disorders, played holiday carols at the front 
door. The string quartet provided entertainment in the for- 
mal dining room. Assembled by Alpha Chi Houseboy 
Hershel Martin, junior in music education, the quartet was 
composed of all K-State students. 

Once they finished planning, members decided on duties 
that needed to be fulfilled during the event. 

"We had people taking coats and greeting the guests," 
Campbell said. "Then they would invite them into the dining 
room where there was a buffet table set up. There were 
people picking up plates and cups or refilling them." 

After the event, members felt pleased with the results and 
the amount of support from Synder, Campbell said. 

"A lot of credit goes to our housemom," she said. "When 
I was asked to head this up, I told her that I've never thrown 
a party. I told her she would have to help me. She showed us 
how to have a party, and she was just phenomenal." 

With the planning and the event behind them, Alpha Chi 
members and their housemother planned to have another 
tea the following year. 

"It's nice to be able to have something like this," Snyder 
said. "I hope that it will be something the house continues to 
do in the future years."

alpha delta pi 


A quadriplegic took time to help five Alpha Delta Pi 
members. Although the ADPis assisted Marge Oaklief, 
former continuing education professor, with her daily 
tasks, such as e-mail, phone calls and meals, she helped 
them realize what they took for granted in their lives. 

"It's taught me to appreciate everything you can do," 
Cindy Hammes, senior in accounting and finance, said. 
"How quickly it may take me to write a list, it may take her 
longer. It makes me appreciate how lucky we are." 

An automobile accident, July 1997, left Oaklief para- 
lyzed from the neck down with limited arm movement, 
Charles Oaklief, her husband and adult education and 
human resource development professor, requested stu- 
dents needing physical therapy or occupational therapy 
experience assist Oaklief in her everyday needs. 

Hammes' major was pre-occupational therapy, and her 
academic adviser told her about Oaklief's situation. After 
meeting her, Hammes invited other ADPis to volunteer at 
the Oaklief's house spring 1998. 

"I was delighted," Oaklief said. "I really am unable to 
do very much. It is really helpful to have them volunteer." 

The ADPis helped develop two Web sites, one for 
quadriplegics and one for Oaklief's business as a continu- 
ing education consultant. They also compiled photo al- 
bums and addressed letters among other tasks. 

Oaklief went on with her life and work traveling, 
speaking at seminars across Kansas and completing revi- 



sions for her 1985 book, "A Review for the Na- 
tional and State Boards for Long-Term Health 
Care Administrators." 

Besides the ADPis, the pre-therapy and pre- 
occupational clubs and pre-health professions 
students made up a staff of 27, half of which the 
Oaklief's paid. Volunteers made up the other half. 

"There's a definite positive effect. Marge really 
enjoys people of any age who see a mission in life," 
Charles Oaklief said. "I think it gives her a breath of fresh 

However, Oakliefs personality affected the ADPis, too. 

"She's somebody I look up to," Hammes said. "She's 
taken her situation and made it positive. I've enjoyed it 
and learned a lot." 

Oaklief also valued the time spent with the ADPis. 

"I realize that they're very busy people," Marge said. "I 
really look forward to each and every visit because they're 
helpful and kind. I would not have a good level of quality 
of life without the volunteers." 

The ADPis helped by allowing Charles Oaklief to 
concentrate on getting effective spinal cord therapy for his 
wife. The possibility existed she was the only quadriplegic 
in the county, Charles said. 

"I don't know what we'd do without them," he said. "It 
really puts their membership in good light. An organiza- 
tion is only as good as the people in it."

Alpha Gamma Rho organized the sixth annual Kids 
Against Cancer 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament for the sec- 
ond year in a row. The April 25 event at Manhattan High 
School's gymnasiums grossed $4,500 for the American Can- 
cer Society. 

Students in third through ninth grades played in the 
tournament. Participants paid an $18 fee to play, which also 
bought them an official event T-shirt. 

"My impression of the event is favorable," Teresa Perky, 
1979 K-State graduate and Buchanan's widow, said. "It has 
been an excellent way for kids to become aware of cancer 
and to participate in raising funds for a worthy cause." 

Event recruitment was not a problem, said Jason Grady, 
tournament director and freshman in veterinary medicine. 

"A lot of the players came from the Manhattan and Fort 
Riley areas," he said. "Teresa brings kids from the Kansas 
City area too and some come from as far as Missouri." 

The 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. event played host to 60 teams for 
a total of 285 students playing in memory off former AGR 

member Jim Buchanan. 

Buchanan was an active AGR while attending K-State, 
Perky said. He served as AGR president in 1974 and, as an 
alumnus, served as an adviser. He died of lymphoma, a can- 
cer of the lymph nodes, May 13, 1993. 

Grady said Steve Smith, local businessman, coordinated 
the event in the past. AGRs helped with the event because 
of its size and the amount of time needed to organize it. 

Kappa Kappa Gamma members had concessions avail- 
able for players and spectators. Perky said they helped with 
this part of the event because she had been a Kappa. 

"Teresa got the Kappas helping with the concession," 
Smith said. "It's a big job. The girls really help out a lot." 

AGR members enjoyed just being able to help. 

"This is a good tournament. It's fun for the kids," Grady 
said. "It's a good way for us to give back to the community. 
Greeks often get a bad rap for not helping in the commu- 
nity. Not everyone sees this because it's not the biggest event, 
but a lot of people enjoy it."

ATOs teach local junior high boys social, life skills 

Acting like kids again gave Alpha Tau Omega members 
the chance to free themselves from the daily college grind 
and help 24 seventh and eighth grade boys learn life skills. 

George Scholthauer, an ATO University of Nebraska 
member alumnus, introduced the Riley County mentoring 
program to K-State ATO members last fall, Jason Pechar, 
junior in finance, said. 

"George did this program when he was in Nebraska," 
Pachar said. "So when he started teaching at Riley County 
he asked us if we wanted to do it." 

Schlothauer said a K-State professor researched the 
stereotypes male role models had on pre-adolescents in 
eight local school districts. The 1998 study showed a need 
for male role models in Riley County. 

Schlothauer said he thought the ATOs could become 
the positive male role models local school children needed. 

"I went to the ATOs because I had experience with this 
activity," Schlothauer said, "and ATO is a quality chapter." 

Pechar said the program received such a favorable 
response not all volunteers could participate. 

"We had over 40 guys volunteer, but there were only 
24 boys," he said in December. "Next semester we are 
adding fourth through eighth grades so more students can 
be mentored and more guys can help with the program." 

Schlothauer said the program was available to the entire 
Riley County Grade School. Teachers and parents 
recommended students they thought would benefit most 
from the program. The parents had the final say in whether 
or not their children participated. 

When the program began, Will Mann, junior in 
secondary education, said the boys seemed hesitant about 
opening up. 

"At first he didn't talk much," Mann said of his mentor 






student. "Now we're buddies." 

Pechar said the ATOs chose to mentor boys 
because boys seemed to be more of the 
troublemakers. He said they would be asking 
sororities to mentor girls next year. 

"We wanted seventh and eighth grade boys 
because this is the time they need the most 
guidance," he said. "There is such a big transition 
between junior high and high school." 

ATO mentors met at Riley County Grade School one 
hour per week with their students and met requirements, 
which included introducing one life or social skill. 

"One example might be, 'Don't give in to peer 
pressure,' " Pechar said. "We go over the stuff they are 
going to hear in high school. We plant a seed and then 
teach them how to make their own decisions." 

Mann said students liked playing basketball better than 
doing homework, but homework came first. After 
completing homework, both mentors and students had 
free time to play games or relax and talk. 

"One student had not done any math assignments all 
week, and his mentor caught him up," Schlothauer said. 
"The next week he had his homework done so he could 
spend time with his mentor." 

Pachar said mentoring allowed the ATOs to have fun. 

"It's like being a kid again," he said. "Sometimes you 
forget you are supposed to be there for the kids." 

However, Pechar said mentors had other 
responsibilities to uphold. 

"We can't walk between buses," he said. "And we can't 
wear hats. We have to remember to be role models." 

Pechar said the ATOs planned to implement the 
mentoring program into their yearly community projects.

Sex Under the Influence brought fraternity and sorority 
members together for Greek 101 in McCain Auditorium 
Sept. 14. Alpha Xi Delta sponsored an informative class on 
sexually transmitted diseases. 

Joel Goldman from Campuspeak, a group employing 
speakers to talk with college students on a wide variety of 
topics related to college life, instructed one of three Greek 101 
sessions. He encouraged students to look at the effects sexual 
decisions had on their lives. 

"The biggest choice that I made was mixing sex and 
alcohol," Goldman said. "And now HIV is my reality." 

Alpha Xi took the initiative by sponsoring one session of 
Greek 101 and bringing in Goldman. Teply estimated it cost 
about $4,500 to bring him in and pay for McCain's $700 
rental. The Bernice Askey program grant gave Alpha Xi $500 
to cover partial costs. Greek Affairs allotted the remaining 
money to the Greek 101 classes. 

"The freshmen attended Greek 101. Being new to the 

college experience, it was a good eye-opener for them," said 
Kelly Sappenfield, program vice president and junior in 
marketing and international business. "Goldman added 
humor to his speech, so you didn't just listen to a speaker talk 
about AIDS. He added a personal experience you could 
listen to and laugh with. Then it wasn't so sad." 

Activities during the class included an hour-long speech 
followed by a game which allowed students to observe how 
fast the AIDS virus could spread, Katie Teply, president and 
senior in mass communications, said. 

"Goldman is an extremely upbeat and inspirational man 
who turned his tragic diagnosis into a positive crusade," 
Teply said. "Not to mention he was very entertaining." 

Sappenfield said he made the students think about the 
choices they made in their lives. 

"I think if I can influence one person's life, it is very 
rewarding," Goldman said. "It is terrible how many people 
are affected, but the problem is very real."

beta sigma psi 


Beta Sigma Psi showed its support by preparing and 
serving food for housemother Stella Leiszler's wedding 
reception Dec. 1 1 . Leiszler's daughters, Phillis Johnsen and 
Janet Whitehair, handled the 350-person guest list while 
the fraternity handled the food. 

"Leiszler asked the fraternity to serve for her recep- 
tion," Josh Hatfield, sophomore in psychology, said. "She 
wanted Beta Sig to make sure that all of her guests were 
taken care of." 

Wedding bells could be heard from St. Andrews 
Church in Abilene, Kan., Dec. 4 as Leiszler wed Vern Holt, 
Abilene, Kan., resident, with only their immediate family 
members in attendance. 

"The wedding was small and simple, the way we 
wanted it," Leiszler said. "I thought it would be difficult to 
include the entire fraternity when we wanted a small 

Holt and Leiszler, both 80, met through his hairdresser 
of 30 years. He made a comment to Janice Rome, Salina 
resident, that he would like to go out sometime with a 
woman. Rome said she knew just the person he should call. 
Three short months after they met they were married. 

"I didn't really ask her to marry me," Holt said. "It was 
a mutual agreement. We talked about considering it and 
then it just happened." 

In her first marriage Leiszler married Dick Leiszler, her 
four children's father, in 1948. After his death in 1973, she 
remained single for 26 years. To fill her time after her

children moved out and began their own lives, 
Leiszler wanted to take care of a family of brothers 
or sisters in a greek house. 

Leiszler said she worked as housemother for 
several fraternities and sororities at K-State and at 
Wichita State University since 1986. At K-State, 
Leiszler was a housemother for Phi Kappa Theta, 
Gamma Phi Beta and Beta Sig. 

"I decided to become a housemother because 
my family had grown up and moved on," she said. "I retired 
from being a beautician, and I needed something to do." 

Working at the house gave Leiszler something to do 
instead of being home alone, she said. She said she enjoyed 
working with the house. 

"We all trusted her and liked to give her a hand when 
we could," Eddie Johnson, sophomore in agricultural 
economics, said. "When I would talk with her she would 
always tell me about her and her family." 

Hatfield said the fraternity would be different after 
Leiszler left. 

"She will be hard to replace," Hatfield said. "Leiszler's 
characteristics were wonderful. She always wanted to talk 
with the guys and be a part of the fraternity." 

Beta Sig members presented a plaque in her name and 
a gold-dipped rose to her from the house. 

"We wanted to wish her well in her new marriage," 
Ha tf ield said . " Leiszler received a thank you from all of the 
brothers to show how much she meant to us."

Beta Theta Pi , one of 137 chapters nationwide, became 
the fourth chapter to adopt the Men of Principle Initiative in 
spring 1999. 

The initiative, a voluntary plan derived from the Beta 
mission statement, was composed of nine goals, including 
lifelong fraternal brotherhood and responsible personal 

"The bottom line of Men of Principle is being who you're 
saying you are," said Martin Cobb, director of Men of Prin- 
ciple Initiative for Beta General Fraternity. "Men of Principle 
brings our fraternity back to our original purposes." 

After witnessing a large amount of negative publicity 
about fraternities, the General Fraternity of Beta Theta Pi's 
Board of Trustees appointed 20 graduates, parents and uni- 
versity officials to begin a strategic planning process Febru- 
ary 1997. 

"The initial presentation was unbelievable," Ben 
Hemmen, 2000 president and junior in political science, said. 
"To see the results (at other universities), how can you turn 
down the program?" 

The success of the University of Nebraska's chapter 
appealed to the Betas, because of the similarities in the 
number and characteristics of men, Trevor McKeeman, 1999 
president and senior in business management, said. 

"We said, 'Yes,' because we had spent the last two years 
re-structuring," McKeeman said . "We realized we already 
had done most of the hard stuff." 

The Betas began Men of Principle in fall 1999 by partici- 
pating in a weekend-long workshop Aug. 27 to 29 familiar- 
izing themselves with the initiative's nine goals. The Betas 
intended to create an annual strategic action plan. This year, 
the plan included rush workshops and all-house grade point 

average improvements. 

The Betas focused on alumni relations, academics and 
community service, but one thing remained essential, 
Hemmen said. 

"The guys of this chapter made us what we were," 
Hemmen said. "If our brotherhood isn't strong, we're not 
strong as a chapter." 

The Betas addressed goals, such as support for each 
pledge, member education, implementation of appropriate 
rituals and risk management, but McKeeman said the house 
had already seen steady positive changes. 

"With us, there was no major change other than the 
realization that what we do affects other people," 
McKeeman said. "The idea that we are isolated and can do 
whatever we want isn't true. We have already overcome 
many things that Men of Principle requires. We just round 
out any rough edges." 

Cobb also said the Betas had many successes, including 
the largest pledge class in recent history for their chapter and 
various intramural accomplishments. 

"It is a model for the entire fraternity," Cobb said. "The K- 
State chapter for many reasons has traditionally been one of 
our strongest chapters in overall contributions to the com- 
munity, alumni and pledges. They have had positive 
changes and are a solid organization. They stand for what we 
believe Beta Theta Pi stands for." 

McKeeman said Beta's improvements before and during 
Men of Principle impressed him. 

"It's still early to see results," McKeeman said. "But to see 
a house struggling to get rid of hazing and then on the cutting 
edge of Beta Theta Pi on a national level is exciting to see as 
a senior."

Rather than having its annual Christmas gift exchange, 
Chi Omega gave to the community. They adopted 50 foster 
children through Flint Hills Breadbasket's Mayor's Holi- 
day Adopt- A-Family program. 

"Instead of getting things for each other this year like 
we normally do, we thought we should do something for 
the underprivileged," said Amy Ratisseau, sophomore in 
journalism and mass communications. "We figured we 
had plenty of picture frames and candles." 

Ratisseau said she heard the Breadbasket offered an 
opportunity to help others. 

"I chose 50 children because we have 50 members in our 
freshman pledge class," she said. "Everyone was so ex- 
cited. They were all showing their kids' gifts to each other. " 

Members bought gifts for 50 of 89 foster children in- 
cluded in the 932 families involved in the Adopt- A-Family 
program. Shirley Bramhall, executive director of Bread- 
basket, said Breadbasket elected to include foster children 
after discussions with its advisory board. 

"Our advisory board is made up of clients, past and 







present," she said. "Families in need were only 
allowed to submit names of children who lived 
permanently in their homes. The board brought 
up that the situation left out foster children." 

Bramhall said the Breadbasket contacted the 
Manhattan branch of Kansas Children's Service 
League, Kansas' only foster parent program, and 
asked about the possibility of working out a way 
to incorporate foster children who did or had lived 
in Manhattan into the Adopt-A-Family program. 

Confidentiality had to be maintained with the foster 
children due to Kansas protective custody laws and the 
children's minor statuses, but the sorority received the 
children's first names, ages, sexes and wish lists. 

Beth Schild, sophomore in elementary education, said 
Chi O members benefited from the program, as well. 

"We had a great time," Schild said. "It gave us a 
wonderful opportunity to have off-campus involvement 
and show our appreciation for the community. We'll 
definitely continue to do this."

A Delta Chi member had the opportunity to go on a trip 
to Europe from Oct. 10 to Dec. 21. Except for his plane ticket, 
the U.S. government funded costs for Tracey Mann, senior in 
agricultural economics, to travel to Skopje, Macedonia, and 
help organize an internship program for its parliament. 

Mann received a call Aug. 10 from his friend John Hart, 
K-State alumni and Oklahoma Congressman Tom Coburn's 
press secretary, asking Mann to accompany Hart. 

"It was completely out of the blue," Mann said. "I've had 
leadership experience as former student body president, but 
there wasn't really a particular reason for me to go." 

Housemother Gayle Spencer said she and Mann dis- 
cussed the trip before he left. 

"At first I was surprised because I've heard that part of 
Europe is a dangerous area, but then I thought about who 
Tracey is, and it made sense," Spencer said. "He's a person 
who always wants to go where there are people in need." 

In preparation for the months ahead, Mann went over 
lists of government briefings about the situations and areas 
he would be encountering. 

"It was kind of a crash course in reading," he said. "But 
as far as the Balkans go, you just have to be there to under- 
stand. As Americans, we cannot comprehend the issues that 
exist. In the United States we have issues with things like tax 
cuts or campaign finance reform, and they're dealing with 

ethnic cleansing and landmines on school property. I 
could've read for five years and still not have fully grasped 
what goes on." 

Due to Macedonia's location in the Balkans, clashing 
ethnic groups overlapped in the country, making it a pos- 
sible time bomb for violence, Mann said. The U.S. govern- 
ment decided to use preventive diplomacy by hiring 25 
Balkan students from St. Cyril and Metodias University and 
the University of Tetova, the only universities in Macedonia. 

"We advertised parliament internships in campus pa- 
pers, and we spoke with professors for recommendations," 
Mann said. "We were looking for enthusiastic young people 
with self-initiative. These students could contribute ideas 
and motivation for the political development they need." 

Mann said skills he acquired while in Europe could be 
applied to his fraternity. 

"There's a system," Mann said. "As you learn how to 
affect a situation, you can understand how to make an 

Mann also said support from Delta Chi members aided in 
his decision to go to Macedonia. 

"We were really excited for him when we found out 
about the chance for him to do this," said Tony McClain, 
president and senior in political science. "He is the ideal 
candidate for dealing with people."

Delta Delta Delta's 9-Hole Golf Scramble in April 2000 
became a new philanthropy to K-State. The activity raised 
money to benefit children's cancer research at St. Jude's 
Children's Research Center in Memphis, Term. 

"We are very excited about our new philanthropy," 
Mary Schwartz, president and senior in biology, said. "The 
9-Hole Scramble enabled us to involve interested students, 
faculty, family members and community members." 

Tri-Delts changed from their former philanthropy, Tail- 
N-Bail, to the 9-Hole Scramble at Wildcat Creek to try to 
involve more independents and the Manhattan commu- 
nity, Jodi Bock, senior in apparel marketing and design, 
said. Jail-N-Bail had involved only the greek community, 
Bock said. 

"I thought that it would be a good way to involve not 
only students but the community as well," Bock said. "Tri- 
Delt wanted to involve not only the greeks but the 
Aggieville merchants as sponsors for the game." 

Bock estimated entry fees around $80. She based these 



a - 
a - 


fees on fraternity and sorority participation in past 
years' philanthropies. In past years, Tri-Delt 
raised between $1,300 and $3,000 in Jail-N-Bail 
each year. 

"All of the proceeds from the 130 other Tri-Delt 
chapters went to St. Jude's," Bock said. "St. Jude's 
received money from all of the previous philan- 
thropies held by the Tri-Delta house." 

Tri-Delt received the award for Most Im- 
proved Philanthropy in 1995, said Heather Smart, public 
relations and marketing coordinator for the Tri-Delt ex- 
ecutive office in Arlington, Texas. Smart said the K-State 
Tri-Delt chapter did an outstanding job in past years with 
its philanthropies. 

"If they could raise $3,000 from Jail-N-Bail, then they 
could raise at least that much from the 9-Hole Scramble," 
Smart said. "It sounded like a good idea. Three thousand 
dollars raised previously was a good amount to build

Married life changed for Jack and Theresa Taylor when 
they decided to become parents — to more than 55 fraternity 

"The guys can knock on the door all hours of the night," 
said Theresa, Delta Sigma Phi housemother and University 
Publications production coordinator. "But they're pretty 
secluded. We don't have to see or deal with what they don't 
want us to deal with." 

Theresa and Jack, chapter adviser, Delta Sig 1992 alum- 
nus and assistant director of student financial assistance and 
undergraduate admissions, agreed to be houseparents 
March 1999 and moved in April. When the last housemother, 
Donna Keim, resigned because she decided to move from the 
fraternity house, the Delta Sigs asked the Taylors to consider 
being houseparents. 

"At first I said, 'No,' " Jack said. "I was worried about 
Theresa to be honest. Since I'm the adviser, I knew all of 
them. She didn't. I thought, 'What if they hate her? What will 
she do?' But it hasn't been a problem. Actually, they like her 
more. They call me the 'old man.' It's 200-times better than I 
thought it would be." 

Theresa said they had a live-in situation with the house, 
so they did not pay rent. Jack said they did not get paid, and 
because they lived in the house, the fraternity could save the 
money used to pay a housemother. The saved funds would 
go toward the house's renovation account. 

"Financially it was a good move," Jack said. "We can set 
the money back so we can do some renovations. We've had 
some people come in and look at the house, and it's going to 
be a major expense." 

Due to the live-in situation, the Taylors took on many 
responsibilities as houseparents. The Taylors taught eti- 
quette and handled visits with parents and prospective 
students, house maintenance and menu planning. 

"Every house needs someone there to keep decorum," 
Jack said. "The guys were looking for somebody who could 
help them. We help them with etiquette situations and 
navigate them through other activities." 

Doug Adams, president and senior in social science, said 
the Taylors provided two points of view, and they both 
worked on campus, which gave members a bonus in han- 
dling class situations. 

"They know the teachers we need to talk to," Adams said. 
"When we have questions or problems, they guide us in the 
right direction. They're real good parents. They're real fair in 
every situation that may come up." 

Jack said the living situation gave him a unique opportu- 
nity to stay connected with students. 

"It gives me the opportunity to interact with students on 
a deeper level," Jack said. "It really put me back in touch with

Fraternity helps member stay out of trouble 

Arrested at age 15 for joyriding and stealing car stereos, 
Jeremy LaFaver, sophomore in marketing and international 
business, decided he'd had enough. He wanted to go to 
college. When his parole officer heard about it, he 
suggested LaFaver attend K-State and pledge Delta Tau 
Delta, like he had done at K-State. 

"My parole officer took care of me," he said. "He 
referred me to the Delts." 

At first, LaFaver said he wasn't sure if he was the type 
to pledge a fraternity. 

"I didn't really like the idea," he said. "It wasn't the 
way I was raised." 

After a year and a half at K-State, LaFaver said he'd 
become a different person. 

"When I came up here, if I would have done the same 
type of thing," he said, "I wouldn't have been accepted by 
the people in the house." 

Ryan Dugan, president and senior in accounting, was 
Rush chairman while LaFaver considered joining the 






"At first, Jeremy was not receptive," he said. 
"But then he decided it would be a lot better, and 
now he's getting along." 

LaFaver said Dugan persuaded him because 
he did not fit the fraternity stereotype. 

"He seemed like he wasn't the frat-guy type," 
he said. "When you think of a frat, you think 
chiseled body. Ryan's got a big potbelly and a 
crooked eye. He's a natural person." 

Brent Sullivan, sophomore in business administration, 
said LaFaver had changed. 

"He's changed like 100 percent," Sullivan said. "He'd 
do anything for anybody. He'd jump off a bridge for 
somebody if they needed him to." 

Sullivan said LaFaver 's past surprised him. 

"I was surprised someone like that would come to 
school," Sullivan said. "You'd think they would work at 
McDonald's and be a manager after 50 years. Jeremy said 
screw that. He wants to make something of himself. He'll 
own 20 McDonald's, not manage one."

delta upsilon 


Delta Upsilon members underwent a transition period 
during the fall while the fraternity completed its Vision 2000 
renovation project. The renovation involved replacing old 
and outdated equipment, upgrading building systems and 
making the house larger and more efficient for members. 

"The house was built in 1956 with temporary plans to 
add on and finish by the 1970s," said J.R. Robl, president 
and junior in political science. "It never got done and now 
over 40 years later, it has been completely finished." 

In 1994, David Fritchen, DU alumnus and project 
coordinator, took over as chapter adviser and helped design 
and develop the new structure. He also helped organize 
fundraising for the renovation. 

Fritchen, department head of architectural engineering 
and construction science, said the convenience of his location 
in Manhattan and his background in construction made his 
involvement in the project possible. 

"I built projects around the world when I was in the Navy 
Civil Engineer Corps," Fritchen said. "This allowed me to 
renew my connection with the fraternity." 

Fritchen said the fraternity met the law requiring major 
building renovations be in compliance with the Americans 
with Disabilities Act. He said they started with the building's 
shell and basically renovated the entire structure. 

"We replaced all the electrical and plumbing fixtures," 
Fritchen said. "We rebuilt walls, got a new phone system, 
electric system, plumbing system, new fire sprinklers, 
heating and air conditioning, data lines, kitchen, dining room 
and brought the building up to local building codes and ADA 

He said throughout the project, alumni and active 
members worked together to complete the design. 

"The actives offered some good suggestions from the 
operational standpoint," Fritchen said. "From furnishings 
in the study rooms to the data needs for computers, their 
feedback was helpful." 

Robl said alumni made both monetary and physical 
contributions. They donated brick, air conditioning units 
and other supplies, he said. 

The fraternity raised about one-third of the required $1.5 
million, and the DU Alumni Corporation financed the 
remainder, Fritchen said. As a result of the renovation, the 
rent for members would increase and the house capacity 
would increase from 64 to 82 members. 

The fraternity rushed 44 pledges in the fall, the largest 
pledge class ever of DU chapters in the nation. 

"The new house was one of the major reasons I joined," 
said Danny Byers, freshman in animal science and industry. 
"I think we'll all treat it a lot nicer than the old house." 

Living in one of the best student housing facilities offered 
a huge advantage to incoming freshmen. However, Robl said 
that could create some fears within the fraternity. 

"I am afraid we will have more students join the house 
for the newly constructed facility," Robl said. "And fewer 
students join the fraternity on the basis of its deep principles 
and traditions." 

A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place Nov. 20 in the new 
structure's honor, and members moved in Jan. 10. 

"It's just a structure," Fritchen said. "The people who 
lived there have not changed. They will continue to support 
the four principles upon which the fraternity was founded: 
the promotion of friendship, the development of character, 
the diffusion of liberal cultures and the advancement of

When K-State added FarmHouse to its greek commu- 
nity in 1921, members built the organization around the 
common traits they shared as agriculture students. Nearly 
80 years after forming at K-State, FarmHouse kept its name 
and its association with agriculture, but it did not limit its 
members to agriculture students. 

"We're not what everyone thinks," Layne Stafford, 
sophomore in art education, said. "We're not just ag based, 
and we don't recruit just ag majors." 

Stafford said members had numerous majors including 
business, computer science and electrical engineering, and 
of the 84 members, 50 percent or less studied agriculture. 

"The name 'FarmHouse' is so misleading," Stafford 
said. "People think we are just cowboys and hicks. We have 
guys who are in Rodeo Club, but others are in Student 
Senate. We're diverse in lots of areas." 

Andy Armbruster, junior in agricultural economics, 
said he disagreed with the "farm-kid" stereotype. He said 
the members based recruitment on different aspects. 

"No one has a greater balance than the other," 

a - 




Armbruster said. "Social /moral means that we go 
out and have fun, but we're gentlemen doing it. 
Intellectual is the academic part, physical or 
sound body, and spiritual." 

Barb Robel, Greek Affairs adviser, said 
FarmHouse required its members to have an agri- 
cultural interest, an agricultural background or an 
agricultural major. However, Stafford said re- 
cruitment weighed more on the individual. 

"The agricultural part comes from the moral or social 
value you get from a small rural community," Stafford 
said. "That's where a lot of our members are from. But 
we've recruited people from Kansas City and Wichita." 

Jason Osner, junior in finance, said most FarmHouse 
members had some type of farming experience or agricul- 
tural background, but said the house opened itself up to 

"With some 60 guys in one house you can't expect us all 
to be interested in the same thing," he said. "Ag's impor- 
tance is not as important as the values of people."

In the living room of the Gamma Phi Beta house, Nicole 
Fischer, freshman in apparel marketing and design, prac- 
ticed her speech for an upcoming presentation. Fischer did 
not practice for a class, but for a beauty pageant. 

Fischer, as wll as Andrea Ediger, sophomore in biology 
and pre-dentistry; Jane Margaritas, junior in elementary 
education; and Lindsay Vogel, junior in marketing and 
international business, participated in beauty pageants. All 
said the pageants helped them gain more confidence, leader- 
ship and public speaking skills because they had to get used 
to speaking and performing before large crowds. 

Ediger competed in her first pageant at age 13 and won 
the 1999 Miss American Coed Pageant. She said her parents 
completely supported her decision to compete in pageants, 
and she always considered them her No. 1 fans. 

"I always used to watch them (pageants) on TV, and I 
always wanted to try it," Ediger said. "My parents encour- 
aged me along the way." 

Fischer said she began competing in pageants her fresh- 
man year of high school for scholarship money. Pageants she 
competed in focused on academics, volunteer service and 
interview sessions, she said. 

Fischer said she won the title of Miss Kansas American 
Coed in July 1999. Participating in pageants required much 
preparation and practice, she said. 

"For interviews, I use my notebooks full of sample ques- 
tions," Fischer said. "And I practice my speeches in front of 
my friends." 

Fischer said she also practiced modeling her evening 
gown and attended interview workshops. 

Vogel, 1999 Gamma Phi president, also participated in 
beauty pageants, and she said they helped improve her 

confidence. She said she began participating in pageants 
because it would be fun and something she could look back 
on and be proud of. Vogel participated in the Miss American 
Coed Pageant in 1996. 

Vogel said women in pageants helped bring a positive 
reputation to the house. Other girls in the house looked up to 
women in pageants because they seemed to have more of a 
grasp on their career goals, Vogel said. 

"They contribute a lot of experiences," Vogel said. "And 
they bring (qualities into) the house that others might not." 

Kelly Reiboldt, junior in marketing and management, 
said she thought women in pageants had the opportunity to 
learn better time management skills. 

"They show ways to figure out time management," she 
said. "It shows other girls that you really can do that much." 

Margaritas began competing in pageants at age 14 after 
she read an article. She said she won the Miss New York 
American Coed Pageant in 1998. Her title in that pageant led 
her to the national pageant, where she met Ediger. 

The pageants Vogel, Fischer, Margaritas and Ediger par- 
ticipated in focused more on academics and community 
service than other pageants, Vogel said. She said the pag- 
eants encouraged more well-rounded girls, instead of focus- 
ing on appearance, by offering more points in the areas of 
community service, interviews and academics. 

Margaritas said it frustrated her when people stereo- 
typed women involved in pageants and sororities. 

"I know a lot of people have negative images (of both the 
greek system and beauty pageants)," Margaritas said. "Dogs 
often bark at things they don't understand. It's the same 
thing with us. You can't criticize something you've never 
been a part of."

kappa alpha theta 


Working with the university and the Flint Hills 
Runner's club, Kappa Alpha Theta raised more than $7,000 
for Court Appointed Special Advocates, Theta's national 
philanthropy, during Family Weekend Oct. 17 at Theta's 
third-annual Wildkat Chase. 

"CASA is volunteers that are the child's voice," Jennifer 
Grennan, junior in industrial engineering, said. "If a child 
is in a situation where their parents are unable to stand up 
for their children in court, then (CASA) learns about the 
case, and they go to court." 

Grennan worked at the Wildkat Chase check-in where 
she handed out packets to the nearly 500 participants at 
the K-State Student Union. Runners ages five to 70 
competed in a 5K race or walk or a 10K race which started 
at the Union, circled around campus, and ended at East 

Becky Royer, Wildkat Chase coordinator and junior in 
finance, said she publicized the event more by adding the 
5K walk and going on "Midday in Kansas," on Topeka's 

"We had a lot of parents the year before who wanted 
to participate, but said they couldn't run," Royer said. "The 
addition of the 5K walk gave us more participants this year 
than ever before." 

Thetas passed out three medals for the male and female 
winners of each of the five age groups per race or walk, as 
well as three overall medals for each race or walk for a 
total of 99 medals. 






"All of the money raised was able to pay the 
employees of CASA," CASA Representative 
Melanie Brakington said. "Our employees work 
hard to bring new hope to children in the court 

Unlike past years, a representative from CASA 
spoke before the event. 

"I am so glad that the Thetas raise money for 
CASA," Wildkat Chase speaker Bill Townsend 
said. "Money that is raised today will help many children 
in the court system." 

Although none of the Thetas could participate in the 
competitions, they all helped put the event together, Royer 
said. The sorority required its members to sign up three 
runners for the Wildkat Chase. At the event, members 
helped direct runners, worked the start and finish lines, 
and registered runners. 

"I raced in the previous races," said Stephen Perchellet, 
Wildkat Chase participant and junior in microbiology. 
"(Wildkat Chase) is well organized and competitive." 

Unlike previous years, having Wildkat Chase on family 
weekend received a positive response from both runners 
and walkers alike. 

"I love our philanthropy," Grennan said. "It involves 
the whole community. It is a good idea to have the Wildkat 
Chase on Family Weekend because more people were in 
town. It didn't just involve the students and community 
but the students' families, too."

After a six-year absence, Kappa Delta returned to K- 
State's campus. The National Sorority of Kappa Delta 
decided to close the Kappa Delta house in 1993 because of 
low pledge numbers. When recruitment increased and the 
national sorority showed interest in returning, K-State 
invited KD back. 

"It was a great joy when the house re-opened," said 
Susan Peterson, KD alumni and president's assistant. "I 
think all the other alumni feel that way, too. We have a lot 
of fond memories that feel like they're alive again." 

University of Kansas members and national officers 
conducted a modified rush Sept. 24-26. The first day, 140 
rushees went to the KD house for snacks, and on the 
second day, they participated in an information session. 
The next morning, they received preference invitations for 
the day's activity. The same day also served as Bid Day, 
when rushees discovered if the sorority accepted their 
bids. If a rushee did not receive a phone call between 2:30 
and 3:30 p.m., the house denied their bid. 

Although KD had its house at K-State, new members 
could not move into the house until fall 2000, because 
renovations had not been completed. 

KD remained busy throughout the year, building rela- 
tionships within its house with a pledge retreat, on campus 
and in the community, said Jill Nestelroad, president and 
junior in apparel and textile marketing. The KDs partici- 
pated, but did not compete in Homecoming, helping with 
Fright Night and entering the float competition and Pant 
the Chant. They also had an after-hours pancake feed with 
Delta Upsilon Nov. 6, and a semi-formal with Gamma Phi 
Beta Dec. 3. 

"Now that we've bonded and gotten to know each 
other, it's time to go out into the community," said 
Nestelroad. "We were just trying to get the essentials, but 



now we're yelling our name in the community." 

The KDs planned to have a lip-synching con- 
test Feb. 26 to benefit their national philanthropy, 
Shamrock, a national association to prevent child 
abuse. Other community service plans included 
adopting a Girl Scouts troop and making valen- 
tines for nursing homes. 

Motivation to join KD differed from member 
to member. Some felt they could share their expe- 
riences with others while taking advantage of sorority 

"I had always been interested in the greek system," 
said Renee Tetuan, senior in nutrition and exercise science. 
"I thought it would be fun to get involved, getting it re- 
established. I thought I could give them advice and help 
out the freshmen and sophomores." 

The idea of colonizing a house and testing leadership 
skills appealed to others. 

"There was something about building a house from 
ground zero and making it a strong house," Nestelroad 
said. "I always said if I was in a house, I wanted to be 
president. It's kind of a big dream for me." 

KD seemed to be bound for a long run at K-State, 
especially with such a successful rush, Barb Robel, Greek 
Affairs adviser, said. 

"They started with strong numbers and a lot of local 
alumni support," Robel said. "Those certainly are indica- 
tions they're doing well." 

To gain more members, KD also scheduled an informal 
rush at the beginning of spring semester. 

"It's living up to more than what we thought it'd be," 
said Amie Kershner, junior in public relations and political 
science. "With everyone being new, there were rough 
spots, but everything's going along."

Kappa Kappa Gamma, K-State's largest greek chapter at 
111 members, began the year under construction as it ex- 
panded its house to deal with rising numbers. 

"It's going to be fantastic," Margie Young, Kappa 
alumna, said. "It's going to help all the way around." 

The project began in summer 1999, after spring classes 
ended and members moved out of the house. Bruce 
McMillan designed the project, and Lonnie Paquette of Riley 
Construction completed it. Alumnae, house dues and a loan 
provided the more than $1.3 million needed to remodel. 

One part of the reconstruction included an expanded 
dining room. Previously, the entire house could not eat 
together in the formal dining room, causing a problem on 
Wednesday night formal dinners, Young said. The Kappas 
temporarily solved the problem by setting up extra tables, 
but during dining room construction, space became even 
more limited. 

"We're eating all over the place, on the floor, in the foyer," 
Ashley Becker, sophomore in elementary education, said. 
"We have about half the space (in the formal dining room)." 

Dining room plans included seating for 150 people. 

Additions included a guest bedroom with a handicap- 
accessible bathroom on the first floor. Previously, the house 
did not have any handicap-accessible living areas available. 
The house's second-floor also gained three, six-girl suites. 

Construction turned out to be minimally disruptive for 
in-house actives, said Andrea Stiens, house manager and 
sophomore in hotel and restaurant management. 

"Living in the dust and listening to the construction have 
probably been the worst things," Stiens said. "But living in it 
isn't too much of an interruption." 

The house set structural construction completion for 
summer 2000, followed by decorating and carpeting. They 
hoped to finish the house by 2000 recruitment.

Kappa Sigma's after-hours Pancake Feed fed 
partygoers 12:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. April 30. For $2.35 a plate, 
Kappa Sig provided people in Aggieville with pancakes, 
orange juice and sausage. The money raised benefited the 
Wonder Workshop Children's Museum in Manhattan. 

"The entire house had shifts," Manolito Munoz, junior 
in pre-occupational therapy and philanthropy chair said. 
"Probably 10 people helped at the table at a time. The 
others would mingle or walk bar to bar and have them 
announce what we were doing." 

With the help of sponsors like Farm Bureau Insurance 
and Rusty's Last Chance, the event raised more than $400, 
Munoz said. 

"We got the idea from another chapter in Iowa," said 
Mark Gregory, Pancake Feed organizer and spring 1999 K- 
State graduate. "It was something similar, not pancakes, 
but whatever they eat up there in Iowa, biscuits and gravy 
or something." 

Gregory said there was room for improvement. 

"It went well," he said. "I would have liked to have seen 
a better turnout, though. But, everyone involved helped 
out a great deal." 

People walked through the buffet line and ate on the 
sidewalk outside Varney's Book Store. Munoz said the 
event was not very stressful, and the fraternity could enjoy 
themselves while they worked. 

"It's a lot of fun," Munoz said. "It's a lot of work, but the 
amount is not tremendous by any means. But we made 
quite a bit of money." 

Munoz said the money would help with the museum's 
operational costs. 






"Basically, we just provide help with their 
financial needs," he said. "It means a lot. They're 
a non-profit organization, so all their money 
comes from private donations. They need all the 
help we can give." 

Tim Schartz, sophomore in mechanical engi- 
neering, said the event was unique to other phi- 

"It's not a sports event," he said. "It's just kind of more 
open to the public. A lot of times these philanthropies just 
get money from other greek houses, and it stays there. 
Ours was open to anyone who was there." 

Schartz also said the event went well, especially being 
the first year. 

"It went all right," he said. "We didn't expect it to take 
off and be great right at the start. No one had heard of it." 

Munoz said that in order to gain more public participa- 
tion, the fraternity planned to move the event from 
Aggieville to the K-State Student Union's Free Speech 
Zone during K-State's All-University Open House April 1 
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

"We hope to try it to see if we can get more involve- 
ment," Munoz said. "I know Mark Gregory wasn't happy 
with the turnout. He had hopes to get a bigger crowd 
because bigger crowds will help the Children's Wonder 
Workshop. By moving it, we hope we can get more fami- 
lies involved, rather than in Aggieville with all the drunks. 
This year we hope to hit up the families." 

Schartz said the event should be continued. 

"We got a lot of good response," Schartz said. "A lot of 
people didn't know about it and said they wish they had."

After 24 years, Lambda Chi Alpha received the first eight 
national Grand High Alpha awards in succession. Every six 
semesters the general fraternity gave the award to a frater- 
nity that received an Excellent Rating for past semesters. 

"There is a possibility that Lambda Chi will throw out the 
standards for Chapter Excellence," David Werner, president 
and senior in construction science and management, said. 
"The plan is to write our own and then use that instead." 

Of the 12 officers, each set separate goals for themselves 
shortly after taking office. The Excellent Rating Lambda Chi 
received instructed all officers to attend a retreat Jan. 9, to set 
their goals for the year. Unattained goals from the previous 
year could be transferred into the new term. Officers re- 
viewed their goals with an appointed goal-board chairman 
in a weekly meeting. 

"We are really confident in being able to reach our goals," 
said Tim Blake, external vice president and sophomore in 
business administration. "We have to keep pressure on the 

members so they will be the best." 

Phil Stein, scholarship chair and junior in political sci- 
ence, set the grade point average goal for the fraternity at 3.1 
for spring 1999. The fraternity dealt with students who did 
not reach the set GPA on an individual basis, Stein said. 
Members would be set up with tutors or other fraternity 
members to help with classes. 

"We set the GPA at 3. 1 to see if we could do better than the 
previous semester," Stein said. "We reached just above a 3.0 
(for the fall 1998). We set it that high to see if we could reach 
it, and we did." 

If Lambda Chi reached its goals, it would have the 
opportunity to write specific evaluations for next year's 
chapter, Stein said. 

"We are in the process of writing right now," Stein said. 
"With the transferring of offices after elections, the old and 
new officers are working together to set new standards for 
the Lambda Chis to achieve."

Pageant focuses on inner beauty 


honors 8 


women on 

campus for 



Bright lights, tuxedo- 
clad ushers and music 
filled Forum Hall Dec. 3 
in the K-State Student 
Union. The almost 250- 
member audience 
stirred, awaiting the 
show's beginning. 
Though starting half- 
an-hour late, the audi- 
ence hushed when the 
first Miss Black and 
Gold Pageant at K-State 

"It was the first time 
I've ever seen anything 
like that for black 
women at K-State," 
Karyn Nesby, senior in 
mass communications, 
said. "It's good to see 
something for women on 
campus hosted by a frater- 

The semi-formal event 
by Alpha Phi Alpha hon- 
ored eight minority women. 
The fraternity set aside 
money for the pageant from 
fundraisers they conducted to 
pay for the pageant's overhead 
cost, said Carlos Etter, pageant co- 
ordinator and junior in manage- 
ment information systems. The over- 
head cost included tuxedos for the ush- 
ers and producing the souvenir book. 
The souvenir book served as a 
momento for contestants and audience 
members. Friends, family and busi- 
nesses could purchase pages to wish 
contestants good luck. Audience 
members paid $5 for admission. The 
money from the souvenir book and 
admission helped pay for Miss Black 
and Gold's $300 book scholarship and 
future pageants. 

"The pageant was to pay tribute to 
the talent and minds of the minority 
women on campus," Etter said. "We 
originally had 20 applicants, and 

through the interview process, nar- 
rowed it down to eight." 

Fraternity members began recruit- 
ing applicants in October by giving 
informative meetings and conducting 
practices. In the interview process, fra- 
ternity members looked at applicants' 
grade point averages, community ser- 
vice activities, campus involvement 
and answers to essay questions. The 
selection process helped find high- 
quality contestants, Etter said. 

"I was kind of surprised when I 
was picked for a contestant," Rebecca 
Hardy, sophomore in apparel market- 
ing and design, who won Miss Conge- 
niality and Miss Souvenir Book for 
selling the most pages in the book. "I 
decided to go for it because I'm a big 
person into being involved." 

The five judges evaluated contes- 
tants on five different categories of 
business attire, talent, swimwear, for- 
mal wear and question and answer. 
Etter said judges weighed the question 
and answer section heaviest, formal 
wear and talent sections equally, and 
business attire and swimwear as least. 

"It's a lot different from other pag- 
eants," said Robyn Reed, junior in eco- 
nomics and social science. "It's not as 
rigid, not as physically based. It was 
more about how I spoke and presented 

Reed, crowned Miss Black and 
Gold after receiving the highest score 
in all categories, won the book scholar- 
ship and an all-expense paid trip to 
Cincinnati. The trip allowed Reed to 
compete in the March regional compe- 
tition as K-State's representative. 

Alpha Phi Alpha planned on mak- 
ing the pageant a fall semester annual 
event. In the future, Etter said the fra- 
ternity hoped to spread campus 
awareness about the pageant and 
draw a more diverse audience. 

"The first year is always the hard- 
est," Etter said. "Now that we have a 
foundation, we can make it better." 

After winning Miss Black and Gold at Alpha Phi Alpha's 
first Miss Black and Gold Pageant Dec. 3 in K-State Student 
Union's Forum Hall, Robyn Reed, junior in economics and 
social science, hugs a well-wisher. "It was very exciting," 
Reed said. "It was an honor to represent the Kappa Tau 
chapter and be an honorary member." Reed, who also won 
Miss Elegance and Miss Talent, said the introduction and 
interview sessions provided her with the biggest challenges 
in the pageant. "The hardest thing is keeping focused on 
the real issues and not the surface issues," Reed said. "It's 
hard not to pick yourself apart." (Photo by Evan Semon) 

Miss Black and Gold contestants Felicia Walker, sophomore 
in pre-veterninary medicine, and Reed help each other get 
ready before the competition. Walker won Miss Black, the 
second runner-up to Miss Black and Gold. The women 
started practicing for the pageant one week before 
Halloween with one practice a week and ended with three 
practices each week, Reed said. "Some nights they practiced 
as long as four hours a night," said Carlos Etter, pageant 
coordinator and junior in management information systems. 
"It wouldn't be possible without the girls." (Photo by Evan

Rival chapters from KU, K-State unite for cause 

The Sunflower Showdown meant more than a 
football game for Phi Gamma Delta. The 26th Annual 
Fiji Run For Leukemia Oct. 9 raised more than $400,000 
for the Leukemia Society of America. 

After Fiji member Rod Morgan died of leukemia in 
1976, the Fijis wanted to do something to honor his 
memory. They began the Fiji Run and continued the 
tradition every year. 

"They don't know Rod at all and never will," Troy 
Fitzgerald, Leukemia Society campaign coordinator, 
said. "But it's great they're still working for this cause." 

Every Thursday before the K-State vs. KU football 
game, the home team's Fijis spent the night at the 
visiting team's Fiji house. The next morning, both 
fraternities began the run at the visiting team's stadium 
down Highway 24. Taking turns every half-mile, one 
person at a time ran with a football for the next day's 
game. Once a car dropped off a new runner and picked 
up the old runner, the car traveled to the front of the 
caravan. The runner would run to the next car, and the 
process would repeat itself until the Fijis reached the 
home team's stadium. When finished, both chapters 
spent the night at the home team's Fiji's house and went 
to the game together the next day. 

"The neatest part is when you're in the car, it's half 
KU, half K-State, and you talk," said Erik Anderson, K- 
State president and junior in business administration. 



"We get to know each other and the differences 
between our chapters." 

This year, K-State's Fijis raised just over 
$17,000, which, combined with KU Fijis, totaled 
$34,000. This was not only the most money the 
Fijis donated to the philanthropy, but the first 
time K-State raised more than KU. 

A combination of reasons led to the increase 
in donations, said Jared Gudenkauf, Fiji Run 
chairman and sophomore in management information 
systems. When planning began in spring 1999, the Fijis 
concentrated on corporate sponsors in the Manhattan 
area. They began collecting two to three months in 
advance. The Fijis also voted to increase each member's 
collecting responsibility from $150 to $200. 

"You feel very proud when your brothers are 
supporting what you put a lot of work into," 
Gudenkauf said. "It's a great feeling when 200 college 
guys can make more than $30,000 for leukemia." 

In celebration of 50 years of service, the Leukemia 
Society awarded one donor from each state the Kansas 
Chapter's 50th Anniversary Chairman's Citation Award 
It presented the award to the K-State Fijis, the largest 
single donor. 

"It's great to see kids take this much responsibility," 
Fitzgerald said. "The Fijis raised all the money by

408 housing 


phi kappa theta 


Phi Kappa Theta members worked together to overcome 
the loss of their house due to financial difficulties in the fall. 

Dan Reardon, president and junior in accounting and 
finance, said the fraternity found out in early September it 
would lose its house. Alumni told members they would lose 
the house by the semester's end, but they still had plenty of 
time to find new housing arrangements, Reardon said. 

Greg Cleaver, scholarship chairman and senior in politi- 
cal science, said even though the financial difficulties with 
the house caused a strain on the group, it brought fraternity 
members closer together. 

"Actually, it's made us stronger because we had to pull 
together," Cleaver said. "We had to pay for a lot of things out 
of our own pockets." 

Cleaver said most of the financial problems dealt with 
funding management. He said alumni handled financial 
affairs, and even though they had mentioned some financial 
difficulties, they decided to open the house when fall semes- 
ter started as planned. Although members knew some sort of 
problem existed, they did not realize the seriousness of the 
situation, Cleaver said. 

Although the fraternity lost its house, Reardon said it 
continued all regular activities and meetings. 

"We still maintain the same activities," Reardon said. 
"And we hold the same chapter meetings as before." 

Not having a house also meant they had to find a new 

location for chapter meetings. They started having chapter 
meetings in one member's apartment, but they soon decided 
to have the meetings in the K-State Student Union because it 
seemed more formal, Cleaver said. They also continued to 
have formal dress during chapter, he said. 

Cleaver said members had confidence in their ability to 
rebuild the house, and they planned to make renovations in 
spring 2000. They also continued to concentrate on increas- 
ing rush membership because more members meant more 
revenue, he said. 

Closing fraternities and sororities due to financial diffi- 
culties did not happen very often at K-State. 

"It's fairly rare," Barb Robel, Greek Affairs adviser, said. 
"This is only the second one that I'm aware of." 

Not living together caused members to realize how they 
took having a house for granted, Cleaver said. He said 
members had difficulty maintaining closeness when they 
did not live together. However, he said they tried to stay close 
by holding weekly social events at one of the member's 

Cleaver also said they continued to host social events, 
such as their formal. They rented a dance hall for their formal 
dance, he said. 

"We won't cut corners just because we don't have a 
house," Cleaver said. " The spirit of Phi Kappa Theta is still 
strong and kicking."

Five Pi Beta Phi members traveled to Houston for Pi Beta 
Phi's 62nd national convention June 25-29. At the awards 
presentation, Pi Phi received the Balfour Cup Award for top 
chapter in the nation, the first time for K-State since 1961. 

"We were all holding hands when they announced the 
second-place winner," Katie Smith, senior in apparel mar- 
keting and design, said. "At that point we started screaming. 
We knew we had won." 

Of the 133 chapters in the United States and Canada, the 
Grand Council judged each of them on community, campus 
and Panhellenic involvement, as well as fraternal tradition 
and scholarship programs. 

The Links to Literacy program involved the Pi Phis with 
the community, Sara Tirrell, junior in pre-medicine, said. Pi 
Phi sponsored book drives and worked with elementary 
school students through the program. Judges looked at 
community involvement, such as Links to Literacy, in the 
sorority for the award. 

"Pi Phis read to children in local elementary schools," 
Tirrell said. "Literacy is one of our major concerns." 

Judges also looked at campus involvement. The Wildcat 
Variety Show, their annual philanthropy, Feb. 11, 1999, met 
those requirements. The event raised $3,000 which went to 
the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Manhattan Medi- 
cal Emergency Center. 

Along with community involvement, the Grand Council 
also looked at new and active member interaction, scholar- 
ship and academic standings, campus honors and awards 
and alumni relations, Colleen Bolin, 1999 president, said. 

"The council looked at many different aspects," she said. 
"We don't really know what gets looked at." 

The Pi Phis did not slow down in any way after receiving 
the award, Smith said. 

"It is more than something to work for," Smith said. "We 
are working toward constantly improving our chapter. If we 
don't work for it, Pi Phi won't go any higher."

Pikes overcome financial obstacles, recreate image 

In order to survive as an active fraternity, Pi Kappa 
Alpha members had to turn things around in a short 
amount of time. In spring 1999 the chapter had its charter, 
the document establishing the group as an official Pike 
member, suspended. The fraternity went up for a one-year 
review for removal after financial difficulties forced it into 
debt and out of stable condition. 

"We were on pretty shaky ground," said Evan Moodie, 
president and senior in milling science and management. 
"Certain members weren't paying their house bills so we 
owed a considerable sum of money to local businesses and 
our national fraternity." 

In spring 1999, national headquarters interviewed 
house members after recognizing the problem. Authorities 
found lack of required payments, weak academic stand- 
ings and low extracurricular involvement as basis to dis- 
miss about 40 members, Moodie said. Upperclassmen 
made up most of the dismissed members. 

"At first the whole concept was sort of scary because the 
older influence in the house was leaving, and we weren't 
sure who was going to step up," Moodie said. "Once it 
sunk in, though, it was actually exciting. We knew it was 
something that needed to happen for us to progress." 

Initiating all 28 pledges and meeting the house's 56- 
person capacity helped Pike regain a positive image with 
headquarters and alumni, said Richard Markley, treasurer 
and junior in electrical engineering. 




— i 

"The money from new members and filling the 
house allowed us to meet financial needs," 
Markley said. "We've completely paid off local 
businesses, and we've paid back a significant 
amount of money to the national fraternity. I 
wouldn't be surprised if they wrote off the re- 
maining debt because they're impressed with our 
efforts. Both headquarters and our alumni are 
learning how important this is to us." 

The Pikes did not try to hide their history from those 
who considered joining the fraternity. 

"They were very open with me and told me all about 
what happened with their financial troubles," Kit 
Maxfield, freshman in business administration, said. "I 
was a little iffy at first, but the guys in the house are so 
great, in the end it didn't really affect my decision to 
pledge. I admire them. They've really made a comeback 
and changed things for the better." 

Shifting bill-collection responsibility to Omega Finan- 
cial agency helped the fraternity prevent the same mis- 
takes from recurring in the future, Markley said. 

Moodie said the fraternity continued to head in the 
right direction, and he had high hopes for its future. 

"Things are looking great, and at this point I'm 90- 
percent sure that we'll get our charter back," Moodie said. 
"We've gone through necessary changes and as long as we 
keep working hard, the sky's the limit."

Pi Kappa Phi revived a national fraternity tradition by 
making it a new event for their chapter. The Pi Kaps spon- 
sored a red rose garden for the campus, a custom among Pi 
Kap chapters. 

Kansas State University Gardens served as the predeter- 
mined location for the $25,000, 70 feet by 70 feet, diamond- 
shaped garden. The garden would eventually function as 
part of a centerpiece for University Gardens' second phase 
of development. 

"I think it's a great opportunity for the fraternity to 
support K-State by sponsoring this project in Kansas State 
University Gardens," said Scott McElwain, University Gar- 
dens director and research assistant in horticulture forestry 
and recreation. "The rose garden is going to be a significant 
addition to the Gardens' second phase." 

The Pi Kaps' project made up University Gardens' largest 
student organization sponsorship. 

"So far over 10 percent of the funding has been covered 
by out-of-pocket donations from student members them- 
selves, and the rest is coming from alumni," Tim Lindemuth, 
chapter adviser, said in January. "We started fund-raising in 
the fall of '99, and at this point we're over halfway to the 
garden's final cost. Our goal is to be finished with fund- 
raising in the spring of 2000." 

Lindemuth said the idea to donate a garden to the Uni- 
versity had been in the works long before fund-raising 

"About two years ago a horticulture professor came to 
chapter and spoke with students and alumni about doing 
something with University Gardens," Lindemuth said. "We 
had a lot of discussion before we decided to start. Something 
like this can't just happen over night." 

To make paying for the project more convenient, KSU 
Foundation set up a pledge program with the option to 
commit a certain amount of money monthly or annually, 
based on the size of the pledge. 

"I think the cost of the garden was bigger than we 
originally anticipated," said Andy Ohmes, former president 
and senior in biochemistry and chemical science. "The pay- 
ment plan really helps, though. We were nervous about the 
money at first, but everyone seems pretty excited about it, 
and we didn't have to really push the issue." 

Grant Elpers, president and junior in marketing and man- 
agement, said members' favorable response could be attributed 
to their desire to contribute to the fraternity and community. 

"People pretty much supported it from the start," Elpers 
said. "We know it's something we can give back to every- 
body we appreciate. Everyone will be able to enjoy and visit 
the garden." 

The fraternity planned on having a groundbreaking cer- 
emony spring 2000 to celebrate the fundraising. Ohmes said 
the fraternity projected the garden's completion as spring 
2003 and made plans to dedicate the Pi Kappa Phi Red Rose 
Garden for the fraternity's 25-year anniversary that year. 

"We've always wanted to be able to present a gift at our 
25th anniversary," Ohmes said. "Since it's a Pi Kap tradition, 
it's perfect. This is a great way to leave our mark on the 
university. It's something we can be proud of." 

The garden represented more than a gift-giving tradi- 
tion, Lindemuth said. 

"The garden is very symbolic for us," he said. "The red 
rose, which we give pledges at initiation, is our fraternity 
flower. It is a symbol of loyalty. Also, the diamond shape is 
similar to the white-diamond pin members receive."

A visit from Santa Claus and a gift exchange with 
students gave local children a link to K-State's greek 
community. Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Kappa Kappa 
Gamma spent an afternoon with children in the Boys and 
Girls Club of Manhattan Dec. 3. 

SAE members decided to get involved with the Boys 
and Girls Club because they wanted to add a new 
philanthropy, said Justin French, rush chairman and junior 
in milling science and management. He also said their other 
philanthropy, HoopFest, did not attract as many 
participants due to other philanthropies' conflicting dates. 

"The reasoning behind the new philanthropy was we 
looked in some of the Royal Purple yearbooks from the 
'50s and '60s," said Brian Jindra, social chairman and junior 
in microbiology. "We read that our fraternity used to work 
with the organization, so we decided to start working with 
them again." 

French said the first year the fraternity re-introduced 
this event turned out to be very successful because it 
attracted more than 50 children. 

"It benefited all of the members," French said. "You 



— t 


can always put this kind of stuff on a resume. And 
we had fun, too." 

A few weeks before the philanthropy, the 
fraternity asked the children to fill out a wish list, 
and then fraternity members bought gifts for them 
according to the list. They also rented a Santa Claus 
and an elf costume for members to wear. 

Fraternity members arranged to have a bus 
pick up the children and bring them to the SAE 
house to meet Santa Claus and his elf and to receive gifts. 
Each child paired with one SAE member and one Kappa 

Blake Kaus, Boys and Girls Club president and former 
SAE adviser, said the arrangement worked well because 
it helped the children, benefited fraternity and sorority 
members and helped improve the greek system's 

"The children realize there are people who care for 
them, and they may meet someone who becomes a role 
model," Kaus said. "And it gives the college students a 
sense of responsibility."

sigma chi 


After 50 years, Sigma Chi members reunited and remi- 
nisced Nov. 12-14. Sig alumni and active members cel- 
ebrated the anniversary early, due to the fear of bad weather 
on the real anniversary date Dec. 2 and 3, Jack Marker, 
reunion chairman and 1967 graduate, said. 

"The Sigs knew when the true anniversary was," Marker 
said. "We didn't want it to be after Thanksgiving due to the 
declining weather." 

The celebration started off with a re-creation of the initia- 
tion ritual, Marker said. 

"Over 80 alumni came to the re-creation of initiation," 
Marker said. "The members did not get re-initiated. They 
only talked through the procedure." 

The Sigs had a banquet with 425-place settings Nov. 13 at 
the Holiday Inn Holidome, Marker said. Nearly half the 
original 25 members returned for the reunion. Marker said 
he thought each class had representation. 

Other figures who attended the reunion included Arthur 
Metcalf, national president and grand consul and Tom Rob- 
erts, assistant dean of the college of engineering and national 
representative of Kansas-Nebraska Province, praetor. Both 
spoke at the banquet, Matt Carpenter, junior in mass com- 
munications, said. 

"They both spoke about keeping the spirit (of the frater- 
nity) alive for 50 years and to keep it going," Carpenter said. 

Alumni and active Sigs watched the K-State-Nebraska 
football game after the banquet, Luke Meek, 1999 president 
and senior in nutrition science, said. The Holiday Inn set up 
a big screen television for the members to watch the game. 
Some actives and alumni returned to the Sig house to watch 
the game, he said. 

"Everyone sat around and watched the game," Meek 
said. "They talked about the game and past times at the Sig

Local Sigma Kappas celebrate national 125 years of history 

Sigma Kappa planned a week of celebration Nov. 7-14 
in recognition of its 125th anniversary. 

Five women founded Sigma Kappa Nov. 9, 1874, at 
Colby College in Waterville, Maine. The sorority grew to 
115 chapters with more than 123,000 members nationwide. 
Sigma Kappa colonized at K-State in 1991. As members 
and alumnae honored their roots, they invited local 
chapters, K-State and the community. 

"It was a time to think about the meaning behind the 
sorority and all the work that has gone into creating a 
nationwide sorority," Erin Lowe, sophomore in business 
administration, said. "I got to see the difference between 
chapters and learn what their traditions are. It was 
especially cool because we had a chance to unite with our 
rival (University of Kansas) for one day." 

The Sigma Kappa members participated in a week of 
events, called the Week of Giving. Each day had a theme 
to tie-in with the anniversary. 

The first day, Sigma Kappa had an alumnae 
luncheon at the house, followed by an open house with 
tours and refreshments for the public. The sorority also 
had a private reception at the K-State Student Union. Sigma 
Kappa invited local fraternity and sorority presidents and 
housemothers, as well as campus and community leaders. 

"The reception had such a nice atmosphere and a warm 
feeling of togetherness," said Erin Tysinger, freshman in 
apparel marketing and design. "It was neat to get to meet 







the alumnae heads and celebrate with other local 

On National Sigma Kappa Day Nov. 9, every 
chapter in the nation wore pins with the sorority's 
letters on them. 

Sigma Kappa also honored their national 
philanthropies during the week. For Gerontology 
Day Nov. 10, Sigma Kappa organized a fashion 
show at Wharton Manor Nursing Home, and on 
Philanthropy Day Nov. 12, they sold lollipops in the Union 
and in classes for $1 each, donating the proceeds to 
Alzheimer's disease research. 

Sigma Kappa's Founder's Week activities included 
giving gift baskets to each greek house at K-State, picking 
up local parks and meeting at the house to watch the 
Nebraska vs. K-State football game, Nov.13. 

To end the Week of Giving, K-State members went to 
Kansas City, Mo., to meet for a Founder's Day luncheon 
with KU, Northwest Missouri State University and the 
Greater Kansas City chapters Nov. 14. 

"Each chapter presented a song and a poem, which 
was really cool," said April Spence, 125th anniversary 
coordinator and senior in chemistry. "It really helped 
everyone get to know each other." 

Spence said Sigma Kappa wanted to share the 
anniversary with the campus and the community and let 
everyone know they were glad to be at K-State.

One Sigma Nu member recently brought positive atten- 
tion to the fraternity at a national level. 

Chris Sims, senior in family and consumer economics, 
went to the National Association for Personal Financial Ad- 
visers Oct. 14-17 at Lake Lawn Resort and Spa in Delavan, 
Wis. Only two students in the nation received the opportu- 
nity to attend the conference, and both attended K-State. 
Natalie Roberts, senior in family studies and human services, 
also went to the conference. 

Criteria for the conference included a grade point average 
of 3.0 or higher and a junior or senior standing. Students also 
had to be in financial planning-related majors and had to 
write a three-page essay about their interests in financial 
planning and how attending the conference would benefit 
them personally. 

Sims said he did not expect to win, and it surprised him 
when he did. He said he came home one day and the NAPFA 
board had left him a message on his answering machine 
saying he had won. 

"I didn't think I was going to win," Sims said. "But I knew 
it would be a great experience." 

He said he knew he would learn more about financial 
planning, and he would be at the conference with many 
respected financial planners from across the country. 

John Grable, Certified Financial Planner Board of Stan- 
dards director and assistant family studies and human re- 
sources professor, said the number of recipients varied each 
year. A board of five to seven NAPFA members chose the 
winners based highly on the essays each applicant wrote. The 
board only chose students they thought truly deserved to 
attend the conference, Grable said. 

Mike Preisinger, Sigma Nu member and senior in horti- 
culture, said Sims' accomplishment impressed him. He said 
the entire fraternity made sure everyone knew about the 
honor Sims received. 

"I was pretty impressed," Preisinger said. "It was a na- 
tional conference and only two people got picked to go." 

Some of the sessions Sims attended included Invest- 
ments, Retirement Planning, Estate Planning and 
Revisualization. During the sessions, speakers discussed 
new techniques in the financial-planning field. 

Sims said he was very excited about the trip, and he 
thought more internships would be available to him because 
of contacts he established at the conference. Sims said many 
respected financial advisers who had received recognition in 
newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The New 
York Times attended the conference. 

"We were really proud of Natalie and Chris," Grable 
said. "They did so well and they represented K-State well." 

Grable said after Sims and Roberts returned from the 
conference, financial-planning employers from Chicago and 
New York City began calling him looking for K-State gradu- 
ates to hire because Sims and Roberts made such good 
impressions. He also said because the board chose only two 
students to attend the conference, and both came from K- 
State, people would realize K-State had strengths in more 
areas besides football. 

Besides K-State, fewer than 100 universities across the 
country offered the Certified Financial Planner program, 
Grable said. 

"Most people don't even know we have this program," 
Grable said. "We're small, but we're growing." 

Sims continued his contact with NAPFA members, help- 
ing coordinate a workshop for the next conference in Octo- 
ber 2000 in Kansas City, Mo. The workshop would be de- 
signed specifically for students majoring in financial plan- 
ning. He said he continued his involvement with NAPFA 
because he thought he should help the organization to show 
his appreciation for everything he gained at the conference. 

He said his attendance helped make him a positive 
example for some of the younger fraternity members. 

"I'm involved in a lot of student governments and things 
like that," Sims said. "I'm trying to act as a role model for 
younger people."

Giving back became Sigma Phi Epsilon's mission. Set- 
ting a goal of 5,000 collective community service hours, Sig 
Ep made giving back to the Manhattan area a priority. 

"It's basically an internal competition for ourselves," 
said David Waterson, president and junior in marketing 
and international business. "When we meet our goal we'll 
keep going." 

After facing alcohol-related charges in 1996, sanctions 
demanded 6,500 hours of community service from Sig Ep. 
The fraternity completed the goal, and this year, they 
decided to set another one. 

"It's a huge amount of community service hours," said 
Matt Wildman, 1999 president and senior in life sciences 
and management information systems. "We decided to do 
it on our own instead of a reactive measure to an outside 

After members completed community service hours, 
they wrote them down on a slip of paper with witnesses' or 
other volunteers' names and dropped it in the community 
service box. 

The Sig Eps averaged about 650 hours a month and 
collected more than 2,500 hours from August to December. 

"As a whole, we're really concerned and involved," 
said Geoff Norby, community service chair and freshman 
in business administration and modern languages. "We 
try to make that a priority." 



While most members earned hours individu- 
ally, occasionally the entire house pitched in on a 
project. Members cleaned a field northwest of 
Manhattan for the Audobon Society, bowled with 
the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Manhattan Inc. 
and threw a Christmas party, for Boys and Girls 
Club of Manhattan with Chi Omega. 

"It's great," Waterson said. "You can't help but 
feel a little bit proud when you see a bunch of guys 
pulling together." 

The fraternity also tutored students at local elementary 
schools. Waterson, a playground supervisor at Bluemont 
School in 1997, began tutoring children when they con- 
fided they needed help with schoolwork. About 40 Sig Eps 
tutored third through sixth graders at Woodrow Wilson 
School and Bluemont. They went to the schools once a 
week for one hour and each helped three to five children. 
Sig Ep helped communities outside Manhattan. 
Groups restored Gage Park in Topeka, painting play- 
ground equipment and picking up trash. As part of the 
Adopt-a-Highway program, the Sig Eps picked up trash 
along two miles north of Manhattan on Interstate High- 
way 70 twice a semester. 

"It makes you feel like you're not wasting time," Norby 
said. "You're always doing something productive and 
helping people."

Tau Kappa Epsilon's 68th annual Powder Puff football 
philanthropy raised more than $1,500 for Special Olympics. 

"Powder Puff is a great way to raise money for our 
philanthropy," said Chris Billinger, Powder Puff coach and 
sophomore in secondary education. "The girls seem to have 
fun and are really competitive." 

T-shirt sales to participants and sponsorships and cash 
donations from local area businesses generated most of the 
money. The rest came from each team's required $90 entry 

Each sorority in the Panhellenic Council participated in 
the event at a total of 10 teams. Depending on the sorority, 
team numbers ranged from seven women, the minimum 
number to play, to 25. All TKE members served as coaches 
and referees, enforcing intramural flag football rules, with 
each team having five to seven coaches. 

"Powder Puff is a way to build friendships between the 
coaches and the girls," said Dana Steinlage, Tau Kappa 
Epsilon president and senior in marketing. "The games are 
a great way to meet new people. The participation of the girls 
is incredible and normally a lot of people come to watch the 

Individual coaches and teams organized the practices, so 
the amount of time practicing varied per team. In order to 

designate a winner, the TKEs used a single-elimination, 
round-robin tournament format with four to five games for 
each team. Kappa Alpha Theta beat Alpha Chi Omega in the 
championship game Oct. 19 with a score of 19-13. 

"It was very exciting (winning the championship)," said 
Lori Gruenbacher, Kappa Alpha Theta player and freshman 
in milling science and management. "The seniors and juniors 
who had been playing for four years were very hysterical." 

Gruenbacher said the philanthropy helped the Thetas 
build friendships from within the house because they had to 
work and build as a team. She said the TKEs taught the 
Thetas plays and helped them apply them at practices and in 

"I was surprised," Gruenbacher said. "They were real 
aggressive in their coaching." 

Gruenbacher said the TKEs' philanthropy benefited ev- 
eryone involved because it helped participants get to know 
more people from K-State. She said the time spent at games 
and practices helped the team bond. 

"I really like our philanthropy because it is different," 
said Andy Dibble, philanthropy chair and junior in finance. 
"Most last only a couple of days or a weekend whereas ours 
is over a course of about six weeks. This gives us time to 
really get to know the girls better."

Theta Chi introduces itself to K-State greek community 

A new opportunity for student involvement presented 
itself with Theta Chi's colonization. 

"What most students don't know is that the KSU Greek 
system is one of the best in the nation./' said Brian Lilley 
president and senior in accounting and management 
information systems. "Theta Chi was very anxious for an 
opportunity to establish itself in such a successful 

In spring 1999, Interfraternity Council discussed 
allowing another fraternity to expand at K-State, he said. 

"When we looked at adding another fraternity to K- 
State's greek community we looked at the strength of the 
national organization," Barb Robel, Greek Affairs adviser, 


said. "We wanted a group that had a commitment 
to the community." 

In August, Theta Chi's national expansion 
coordinator began recruiting members. 

"I learned about Theta Chi by talking to a 
representative at the Union," said Brent Anders, 
Webmaster and junior in psychology. "I wanted 
to be part of a close-knit organization." 

Lilley said Theta Chi concentrated all early 
efforts on gaining members. 

"We are currently at 30 members," he said. "That ranks 
us fifth in the nation among Theta Chi chapters for fall

Quarters stretched through campus as part of Theta 
Xi's and Pi Beta Phi's Miracle Mile philanthropy April 10, 
K-State's All-University Open House. The event, which 
raised money for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, asked 
other greek organizations, local businesses and Open 
House attendees to donate quarters in an attempt to receive 
enough quarters to make a mile. 

"A lot of the greek philanthropies are just for greeks," 
said Nathan Johannes, sophomore in architectural 
engineering and Theta Xi's philanthropy chair. "We try to 
include the whole community in what we do." 

The Miracle Mile stretched from the K-State Student 
Union to Durland Hall and Hale Library, with a section 
near the Veterinary Medicine Complex, said Lindsay Youle, 
Pi Phi's philanthropy chair during the event and junior in 

While the event did not raise enough to reach the 
$15,840 needed to make a mile of quarters, it came the 
closest it ever had in its three-year history. After expenses, 
Theta Xi and Pi Phi raised $2,000. 

"It went really well," Youle said. "Even if we didn't 
quite make the whole mile." 

Travis Bloom, senior in public relations and Miracle 
Mile chairman, said trying to raise enough to reach the 
length of a mile could be difficult, so instead of setting the 
mile as a goal, they set a more realistic goal of $2,000 and 
worked to raise it each year. 

"Any improvement we can make is improving," Bloom 
said. "It's easy to say we want to raise a mile in quarters 
and know we probably won't, but to say we want to raise 
$2,000 is something else." 

Bloom said asking fraternities and sororities to donate 
money could be tough. 







"It's hard in this environment, really hard," 
he said. "Greeks participate in a kit of 
philanthropies. You can't ask them to donate 

Youle said one of the philanthropy's benefits 
was greek organizations did not have to attend 
the event in order to participate. 

"It's a really good philanthropy," she said. "A 
lot of the other ones, only other houses participate. It's 
hard to find a time that works with their schedule. With 
the Miracle Mile, all they have to do is donate money, and 
we get the money we need." 

Along the route, Theta Xi and Pi Phi conducted games 
like hopscotch, a beanbag toss and Twister to entertain 

"We tried to give activities for kids to play," Youle said. 
"We wanted to have something fun for them, a carnival- 
type atmosphere." 

Youle said the Miracle Mile was also fun for Theta Xi 
and Pi Phi members. 

"It's fun for us to be there," Youle said. "It's really just 
about getting the donations. It's really easy to participate 
and donate. I really like it. It's a good one." 

Bloom said it took about 200 sorority and fraternity 
members to coordinate the event. Some members went to 
local businesses to ask them to donate money and others 
stood along the' route to advertise why the money was 
there. Bloom also said the philanthropy helped take away 
some of the stereotypes associated with college students. 

"Young individuals generally aren't usually the type 
to put that kind of effort, spending time to donate to a 
cause like that," Bloom said. "It's a really good cause, as 
are all philanthropies."

Although Triangle increased its membership from 12 to 
17 men, it could not keep its house on 1008 Ratone. Lack of 
funds and decreased involvement from alumni contributed 
to Triangle's first year without a house. 

From 1996 to 1997, Triangle owned a house at 221 N. 
Delaware, and from 1997 to June 1999, Triangle members 
lived in the house on Ratone. Triangle sold the 90-year-old 
house in June because it required upkeep funds the fraternity 

"We initially tried to convince the alumni that they 
needed to hold onto it for another six months to a year," said 
Cris Ratliff, president and senior in mechanical engineering. 
"We got together and told ourselves and told the alumni that 
we're just going to do this ourselves." 

Karl Tsen, junior in chemical engineering, said he 
thought their funds were fine, but to the alumni's point of 
view, they were weak. 

"They made the decision," Tsen said. "Once we found 
out it was a done deal, we decided to move on." 

Ratliff had lived in the Triangle house since his freshman 
year. He said he had not planned on moving out his senior 
year, but because the alumni had given members about two 
months warning, everyone found a new place to live. 

"I didn't support the idea, but I went with it," Tsen said. 
"It was regrettable, but once it happened, it allowed us to 
focus more on what we need to do as a fraternity." 

Despite losing their house, Ratliff said fraternity mem- 

bers got together to get past their hardship. 

"We're still seeing benefits and bad things of not having 
a house," Ratliff said. "I think we've become closer as a frat. 
We get together more at each other's apartments." 

Members replaced message boards used in the old house 
with contact methods such as phone calls and visitations. 
They also gathered at the K-State Student Union for meet- 
ings, but had to meet elsewhere for activities. 

"It makes it a little bit harder for meetings," Ratliff said. 
"We have to rely more on each other." 

Ratliff said not having a house meant lower pledge dues, 
activity fees and more money for recreational activities. 

"It turned out to be better for us financially," Aaron Fish, 
senior in mass communications, said. "It's helping us re- 
group and re-colonize. Our focus right now is recruitment 
and getting membership back up." 

Future plans for a new house depended on alumni's 
funding, as well as membership finances. As of spring 2000, 
Triangle members had no fundraising plans for a new house. 

"There are a lot of disadvantages and advantages to not 
having a house," Ratliff said. "We don't have a single place 
to gather, so it makes it harder to get together." 

Tsen said the number of fall 1999 pledges reached higher 
numbers than in the previous three years, with five fresh- 

"We've come together as a frat," Tsen said. "We've been 
more confident in our recruitment."

K-State-Salina residence halls play host to trick-or-treaters 

Hallways covered in streamers and balloons greeted 
trick-or-treaters at K-State-Salina's Halloween night. 
Decorations ranged in complexity from carved pumpkins 
to seeing a person jump out of a cardboard coffin. 

"We had a lot of fun dressing up and handing out 
candy," said Melisa Woods, K-State-Salina's Residence 
Hall Association vice president and sophomore in airway 
science. "We had the kids from town come in and trick-or- 

Using less than $50, eight RHA wing representatives 
organized the Halloween party, it was the group's first 
time planning anything in the halls for the community. 

"About 50 to 60 out of 200 residents dressed up and 
helped out," said Luke Kumberg, K-State-Salina's RHA 
president and sophomore in computer information 
systems. "K-State-Salina is such a new school. We are 
trying to tie the residence halls together with the campus 
through traditions. We are trying to encourage community 
service projects to be more in touch with the community." 

About two weeks before the party, RHA started 




advertising on radio stations and posting signs in 
local businesses about the event. 

"A lot of people don't realize we have dorms 
out here," Woods said. "Also there has been a lot 
of road construction that kind of blocks the 
entrance to the residence halls. I'm surprised so 
many came." 

Alan Aubert, coordinator of K-State-Salina's 
housing department, said the halls wanted to try 
to make it an annual event to help with community 

"We had 75 kids and their parents show up," Aubert 
said. "The residents had fun and the kids did too. " 

Woods said the event helped spread the university's 
name in the area. She said planning the party brought 
the halls' residents together by giving them a chance to 
work on a group project. 

"It was positive," Woods said. "It gave the halls 
something to do, and it gave the parents a place to take 
the kids for trick-or-treating."

Family relationship rewards student 

Many students struggled during the 
year to manage their time effectively be- 
tween school and work. Adding a small 
family to the mix, Jason Swartz, senior 
in civil engineering, said he tried to be 
a good student while still trying to pro- 
vide for his family. 

"The biggest challenge is to try to 
organize my time to finish my school- 
work, go to work and still have time to 
be part of the family," Jason said. "But 
I'm rewarded with having a good fam- 
ily relationship. I have the love from my 
kids and my wife. For me that's very 
rewarding, to have their love and a ca- 
reer I enjoy." 

Heather Swartz, Jason's wife, gave 
up her job as an insurance salesperson 
when she became pregnant with her 
daughter their freshman year at K-State. 
She said she willingly put her educa- 
tion on hold to allow Swartz to finish 
his. Heather said she might go back to 
school later, but she liked just being a 
mom for now. She said she found it dif- 
ficult sometimes to always support 
Swartz in school and work. 

"Every once in a while, when I have 
a bad day, it's hard," Heather said. "But, 
he's such a hard worker, and I love him 
so much. It's not too hard, I guess. The 
biggest thing is just to encourage him 
and be there for him. It's easier now 
since he's almost done." 

Jason and Heather started dating 
during their senior year in high school 
and married in 1995. 

"We were high school sweethearts," 
he said. 

The Swartz's had two children, Jes- 
sica, 3, and Jacob, 11 months. 

"Jessica was kind of a surprise," Ja- 

son said. "With Jacob, we 
decided to go ahead and 
do it. It's easy to say, 
'Wait until I have more 
money, or until I have a 
better job or until I have 
more time.' It's easy to 
put it off. We wanted 
our kids close together, 
so we went ahead and 
planned our second 

Until his May gradu- 
ation, Jason worked 32 
to 35 hours a week in 
Dillons', 1000 Westloop, 
produce department. In 
October, Black and 
Veatch in Kansas City, 
Mo., hired him to start af- 
ter his graduation in the 
power division designing 
buildings, foundations and 

"Black and Veatch is a 
great firm," Stuart Swartz, 
professor of civil engineering, 
said. "It's one of our mainstays. 
They hire a lot of our graduates, 
and it's basically all civil-engi- 
neering based." 

Heather said Jason's accomplish- 
ments and future job made all the 
years of being poor and waking him 
up at 4 a.m. for work worth it. 

"I don't feel like I've sacrificed," 
she said. "I just feel like we're just re- 
ally blessed by God. We are very 
happy with what we have. He's been 
working at Dillons to support us, and 
now he's going to be doing something 
he enjoys. It's been worth it."

Karre Burchett's life 
changed forever in a mat- 
ter of seconds. 

Eleven years ago, she 
drove down a gravel 
road and lost control of 
her vehicle, and it over- 
turned. The accident left 
her paralyzed and con- 
fined to a wheelchair. 

"I wasn't even exces- 
sively speeding," she 
said. "It was just a fluke 

Burchett, senior in el- 
ementary education, 
soon discovered the dif- 
ficulties she would face 
as a physically disabled 
college student. 

After graduating from 
high school, Burchett at- 
tended Johnson County 
Community College for 3- 
1/2 years. 
"I went to Johnson 
County for as long as pos- 
sible," she said. "It's excellent 
there. They have some of the 
best accommodations for dis- 
abilities in the nation." 
Burchett, 26, was one of about 
30 K-State students who relied on 
wheelchairs for mobility, said 
Gretchen Holden, Disabled Student 
Services director. 

Gerald Carter, facilities planning 
and university architect director, said 
much work had been done to accom- 
modate disabilities. 

"The university has continually 
managed to upgrade facilities 
throughout campus in order to make 
it more accessible to disabled indi- 
viduals," he said. 

Carter said the increase in ramps 
on campus and changes made to large 
lecture halls and electronic classrooms 
have been some of the more visible 
accommodations. Other important 

changes included new sidewalks and 
elevators in various buildings, he said. 

The university still had barriers to 
cross, Burchett said. 

"It isn't as good as it could be, but 
they try," she said. "It's really hard to 
adapt buildings that are 100 years 

Burchett said she had her share of 
negative experiences while trying to 
maneuver around campus. 

"Last week, I got trapped down- 
stairs in McCain because they decided 
to service the elevator during daytime 
hours," she said. "Four people had to 
carry me upstairs. It made me a little 

Burchett said she did not think 
these mistakes were intentional. 

"People aren't inconsiderate. They 
tend to forget," she said. "They're not 
conscious that some people can't get 
everywhere. I know they really are 
trying to make an effort, but things 
still happen that can cause frustra- 

Holden said plans to adjust inac- 
cessible buildings existed. 

Renovations on Denison and 
Dickens halls and East Stadium con- 
cerned Disabled Student Services, 
Holden said. 

Burchett said handling her disabil- 
ity and learning to adjust to life at K- 
State taught her patience, persever- 
ance and respect. 

"It teaches you to respect other 
people and not be judgmental," she 

She said the university taught her 
a valuable lesson. 

"It's preparing me for life," she 
said. "Not every place in the world is 
accessible like Johnson County." 

Burchett said her only plea to other 
students on campus was to be consid- 
erate of people with disabilities. 

"If somebody is going up a hill and 
it's nice weather, they're fine," she 
said. "If it's icy, give them a push." 

After filling the dishwasher, Karre Burchett, senior in 
elementary education, cleans out her kitchen sink Nov. 18. 
Burchett lived in a two-bedroom apartment with her boyfriend 
Bobby Macek, senior in computer engineering. "Bobby really 
helps out a lot," Burchett said. "But we each have our own 
rooms. It's nice. I can have my own little retreat and lock 
him out." (Photo by Mike Shepherd) 

In City Park, Burchett reaches to pick up a football Nov. 15. 
She said she and her boyfriend enjoyed outdoor activities, 
including canoeing, swimming, camping and tennis. Because 
of limited circulation, Burchett said she was always cold. "It 
seems like Bobby is always hot. I guess we're just polar 
opposites that attract." (Photo by Mike Shepherd)

ne, two, buckle my 90 pairs of shoes 

Shoe addict 

has about 



up in 

Digging under her bed, 
Alison Hagman, junior in 
apparel and textile mar- 
keting, crouched on her 
hands and knees, 

"If you want to see a 
pair of shoes, I got a pair 
under my bed that will 
make you cry," Hagman 
said. "Now, I'd wear 
these only for Hallow- 
een, but I wore them to 
church once." 

The square-heeled, 
four-inch black shoes 
with clear plastic swirls 
on top represented only 
one pair in Hagman's 90- 
pair collection. 

"It's an addiction," she 

said. "It started my 

freshman year in high 

school when I bought two 

of the same shoes. One in 

black and one in blue. They 

were suede tennis shoes with 

big white soles." 

Although she no longer 

wore them, Hagman said she 

would never throw them away. 

"I think I'll always find a use 

for them," Hagman said. "And you 

know they will be in style again. I 

want to keep all my shoes so I can give 

them to my daughter if I have one." 

Hagman's shoe collection 
included everything from $1 garage 
sale bargains her mother found to 
$150 Nike AirMax tennis shoes that 
matched her boyfriend's. 

"For Valentine's Day last year Jed 
(Stephen, senior in horticulture) and 

I bought each other matching 
shoes," Hagman said. "It was his idea. 
He saw a couple that had matching 
shoes and thought it was cool." 

The Valentine's present increased 
the number of athletic shoes in her col- 
lection to six pair, but Hagman said 
she did not even run. 

"Most of my shoes are casual," she 
said. "I don't dress up for class, but I 
like to have many options when I get 
up in the morning." 

Hagman said she only kept 55 to 
60 pair in her Manhattan apartment 
because she did not have enough 
room for all of them. She kept the rest 
at her parents' house. 

"I think Alison has a lot of money 
wrapped up in her shoe addiction," 
Anita Hagman, Alison's mother, said, 
"but it's her money. Her shoes are in 
a big sack in the bottom of the closet. 
Since I'm a similar size, sometimes I 
go in there and snag a pair." 

Roommate Linda Lentz said 
Hagman bought shoes when she felt 
mad, happy or sad. 

"I think everyone finds something 
that expresses a person and who they 
are," Lentz said. "And for Alison, it's 

Hagman said she bought a pair of 
shoes every month or two, and work- 
ing two jobs helped support her shoe 
addiction. Averaging $40 to $50 per 
pair, she said she had spent about 
$3,000 on her shoe addiction. 

"I have a three-tier shoe rack in 
my closet, a shoe bag on my door, a 
plastic box under my bed and about 
seven pair on my closet floor," she 
said. "I need a house. One with a big 

With part of her 90-pair shoe collection, 

Alison Hagman, junior in apparel and textile 

marketing, sits in the middle of her shoes. "I 

can't believe I have this many shoes," she 

said. "I need to go to AA, or wherever people 

with shoe addictions go." (Photo by Steven

From the ballot box to the classroom 

After 9 
years in 


returns for 


She had more real-life 
experience than other 
students in her social sci- 
ence classes. Before en- 
rolling as a full-time 
student, Sydney Carlin, 
junior in social sciences, 
served the city of Man- 
hattan as its mayor. 

After graduating 
from high school in 
1962, Carlin enrolled in 
Neosho County Com- 
munity College, for- 
merly Chanute Junior 
College, for one year. 
She then began working 
to help support her fam- 
ily, she said, because at 
the time, one year of col- 
lege provided enough 
education for most jobs. 

Carlin said her lack of 
college education did not 
become a problem until the 
mid-1970s, when many jobs 
required a college degree. 
Carlin said she always in- 
tended to finish college, but 
her work kept her so busy she 
did not have time. 

"It was something I always 
planned to do," Carlin said. "It 
was one of my goals. But my life just 
led me in another direction." 

Carlin said she became politically 
active while protesting a jail's con- 
struction across the street from her 
children's school in 1988. Her interest 
and involvement in politics snow- 
balled from there, she said. Voters 
elected her to the city commission in 
1993, then she became mayor from 
April 1996 to April 1997. Carlin said 
she enjoyed her work in politics be- 
cause she could use her career's re- 
sources to help people. 

"One of the best things about po- 
litical work is communicating with 
people," Carlin said. "And helping 

them solve their problems." 

After her election to the city com- 
mission, Carlin said she became 
mayor based on the votes she received 
for city commission. Though she did 
not receive a formal education, Carlin 
said she used her personal experi- 
ences and background to serve as 
mayor. She said she learned manage- 
ment and the skills necessary to work 
with people through her farm back- 
ground and by helping her husband 
with the small business he owned. 

Carlin said she took classes occa- 
sionally until her political career be- 
gan, and she continued taking classes 
part time until she decided to become 
a full-time student. She said she 
wanted a bachelor's degree in social 
science because she had set a personal 
goal, not to advance her career. 

Becce Gigot, Carlin's daughter 
and K-State alumna, said she knew 
her mother would finish college. 
Gigot said she took pride in her 
mother's decision to go back. 

"I was really proud of her," Gigot 
said. "She's very determined and she 
won't stop at a bachelor's (degree). 
She'll at least get a master's (degree)." 

John Carlin, Carlin's husband, 
said she put a lot of energy into every- 
thing she did, and she always helped 
anyone in need. 

"She always takes a look at a situ- 
ation," John Carlin said. "Then she 
asks herself, 'What can I do to help?' " 

Linda Richter, political science 
professor, said she liked having 
Carlin in her classes, because she al- 
ways interacted with classmates and 
contributed to classroom discussions. 

"She really interacted well with 
the traditional students," Richter 
said. "She's really quite remarkable." 

Carlin said she liked taking classes 
with younger people, and she said she 
enjoyed knowing she had watched 
many of her classmates grow up with 
her children. 

During the Manhattan Little Apple Basket- 
ball Tournament at Susan B. Anthony 
Middle School Jan. 8, Sydney Carlin, junior 
in social science, sits with her 11 -year-old 
grandson, Jace. After serving as the mayor 
of Manhattan for one year, Carlin enrolled as 
a full-time student at K-State in January 
1 999, four semesters short of achieving her 
bachelor's degree. (Photo by Steven

She's more than just talk 

learns what 

think, sings 

A man walked into a 
bar and, approaching 
two women, commented 
on KXBZ-FM 104.7's 
morning radio show 
"Marshall and Krista in 
the Morning." 

"He said he liked the 
show, but she was stu- 
pid," Krista Chase, se- 
nior in mass communi- 
cations, said. "My 
friend was asking him 
all these questions. We 
thought he knew who I 

Chase said she gave 
her best friend an encour- 
aging look to keep her 

"He kept calling me 

stupid," Chase said. " 'She 

doesn't know her sports.' " 

The man did not know 

Chase as the co-host on the 

morning show until she got 

up to sing, she said. 

"It was karaoke night," 
Chase said. "When the an- 
nouncer called 'Krista Chase,' 
his face, I can't even describe it. 
He was so embarrassed." 
Chase said the man avoided her 
that night. 

"I saw him again two months 
later, and he was like, 'Oh, I'm so 
sorry. I didn't know it was you,' " she 
said. "I didn't try to defend myself. 
You get an honest opinion when 
people don't know who you are. 
Maybe I do need to work on my 

Chase's first radio experience 
started on KM AN- AM 1350 running 
the board, she said. 

"During a K-State game when you 
would hear, 'Now it's time for station 
identification,' I would push the but- 
ton," she said. "That's about it." 

After learning B104. 7 wanted a co- 
host, Chase volunteered to work on 

the air for two to three weeks before 
landing the spot. 

"I did a lot of midnight to 2 a.m. 
shifts," she said. "One day I was just 
observing the show, and Scooter got 
me in there. I liked it, and we had fun." 

Chase said she began with 
Scooter, the original co-host, in Au- 
gust 1998 and later teamed with 
Marshall Witaker in March 1999 to 
form "Marshall and Krista in the 

"It's almost like being a couple," 
Witaker said. "We're not, but we go 
against each other on the show. She's 
sappy. Today on the show she said 
how sweet it is to be proposed to on 
the radio. So I say, 'That sucks. Mar- 
riage is private, and the proposal 
should be private.' " 

Aside from the morning show, 
Chase also worked solo on weekends. 

"It's like talking to a wall," she 
said. "I don't know if people are in 
their car laughing or thinking you are 
stupid, turning the station. You don't 
get a lot of feedback because only 
about 10 percent of listeners call in." 

Steve and Jennifer Newbury, 
Manhattan residents, did call in and 
earned the nickname "The Super 
Couple," Chase said. 

"They both work a lot so they 
don't see each other," Chase said. 
"They'd call almost every day to re- 
quest songs for each other." 

Jennifer said the couple only 
called when Chase worked. 

"She's not supposed to play as 
many requests," Jennifer said. "But 
she lets us request songs so we can 
hear each other's voices. She's not 
only a good DJ, but a good marriage 

After hearing her voice daily on 
the radio, Chase said many people felt 
they knew her. 

"They hear your voice, and they 
think they're your friend," she said. 
"That's cool. I love listener 


' 1^ 



In between songs, Krista Chase, 
senior in mass communications, 
talks to listeners from KXBZ-1 04.7's 
studio Jan 1 1 . Chase said although 
she received little feedback from 
most listeners, she knew people 
listened, and many knew about her 
personal life. "I'm a private person 
in my own life," she said, "but people 
know your life because of stuff you 
said on the air. People will ask me 
how my car is, and I'm like, 'How 
do they knowjbout my car?' Then I 
remember oil the radio I said I got a 
flat tireji&Photo by Steven

holiday season is a time of cheer, but 
pltal stay during this time can cloud 
of the season for children, 
ig the season for giving. Sigma Sigma 
sorority visited MemorlaJ Hospital on 
14 to lift spirits of hospitalized children. 
in the semester the sorority rol- 
led toys and games from their homes or 
Brchased them locally to be donated to the 
|08piral's childrens ward. 

"The older girls In the house did tills two 
rears ago, and they said it was a success, so 
le decided to do it again to help us get more 
Involved In the community." Krlstine Ken- 
nedy, sophomon in an., said. 

ilana Peters, the head of pediatrics at Mc- 
noiial Mo-,]Hijl, h.-lp. .I is < i,r,n <>ui 
pens. She took us around to the rooms and 
introduced us to the < hilrlren." Kcnm-dv 

"Very rarely do we get donations to our pe 
dtatrieaward but whi n wedu it Is very much 
appreciated This was really unexpected and 
extra special, especially with it bcini i hrisi 

mas." said Peters. 

The toys donated needed to have no small 
or sharp parts and if possible, sealed in a 
package. It was of utmost Importance that 
there be no chance of swallowing or disas- 
sembling the toys. Two large boxes of toys 
were collected by the girls and delivered to 
the hospital. 

The toys we have in our ward last about 
six months to a year because of the hard use 
and sometimes abuse from the children. Be- 
cause of the short life of the toys, we are al- 
ways open to donations." Peters said. 

"We handed out only half of the toys on 
our first trip In case other children were to 
come to the hospital on our next trip." Ken- 
nedy said. 

One little girl in the hospital for a stomach 
operation found their visit very special. 

"When we gave her a toy she was really 
surprised, and her smile was so cute. It re- 
ally made us feel warm inside. It really made 
the trip worth while." Kennedy said.

During the 1990 Christmas season, members 
of the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority visited 
Memorial Hospital and donated toys to lift the 
spirit of hospitatlized children. Lack of new 
membership and funds contributed to the 
sorority's closing May 14, 1999. 

Construction workers remove the old stairs to 
rebuild them from scratch at Van Zile Hall. In the 
summer of 1 990, the Strong Complex underwent 
a $7 million renovation. 


Between the events happening on and off campus, the 
91 st Royal Purple captured the happenings of 21 ,543 
people between its covers. • Under the roof of a barn, 
three students lived and worked with animals, learning 
through real-life experience. Between the knowledge they 
brought to K-State and the things they learned through 
the Purebred Beef Teaching Center, the men said they 
felt better prepared for their future agricultural jobs. • 
Christian Challenge provided students with a sock-hop 
dance where students took off their shoes and danced 
to all genres of music. Two members gave their 
testimonies of finding God in an effort to relate with 
and encourage students to pursue faith. • The seventh 
annual Shoot Yourself, where students were free to 
express themselves in photographs captured by T.D. 
Brown, drew 211 participants. • Local and national 
advertisers supported the book and CD-ROM 
supplement, cutting costs and helping students remember 
what happened between 1 999 and 2000.

The Royal Purple invited students, faculty and staff 
members to be photographed with their family, 
friends and co-workers in the Shoot Yourself 
promotion. Sittings for the photos were free and 
students had the opportunity to purchase prints from 
T.D. Brown Studio.
